They've worked with and trained with the best in the world, and while there are excellent coaches who never became World or Olympic champions themselves, Dubreuil Lauzon are not among them. We can see how resourceful choreography is, not to mention technically pristine.* Virtue and Moir are out of Dubreuil Lauzon's league, and if Papadakis Cizeron skated exactly as they skate now but didn't move to Gadbois, they'd have stayed in thirteenth place. Virtue and Moir don't need Brian Freaking Orser watching over their warm-up jackets and skate guards at this stage of their career and abilities.
Not for a single practice session at Skate Freaking Canada.
#CTNSC17 "We've been welcomed back very graciously," said Tessa Virtue.
#CTNSC17 One of the reasons they picked Dubreuil and Lauzon as their coaches is their vision. #CTNSC17 "All part of the magic of training," said Moir.
I've said before that I doubt Virtue and Moir are actually being coached by Marie France Dubreuil and Patrick Lauzon. Even last year's programs, I bet used a mere veneer of Dubreuil-esque flourishes while Virtue and Moir got their real coaching somewhere else.
#CTNSC17 All videos of their SD are now unavailable or muted on Youtube (apart from the NHK one on the CBC channel), is it only my location or is it a common problem?Dubreuil Lauzon and Virtue Moir could be a straight quid pro quo - they enhance Gadbois's reputation by giving Gadbois the credit for fixing their nonexistent flaws, and in exchange for that fake news, Virtue and Moir are allowed to win.Virtue and Moir are absolutely stunning in the Skate Canada practice videos. Bunched fists of drama from Kaitlyn, lots of face skating. Beverly Smith has dumbed down her writing incredibly.People have been uploading the performances to dailymotion instead.

Virtue says they're working on a different style of skating.
