    SLC2, you are 100% right. And the guidlines for the judges make clear points about this, saying that a modest technical performance can not score high at the artistical side of the scoresheet. Furthermore the coƫfficient for the choice of music and interpretation of the music has changed from 6 to 4 last month.

    Anky still would have been the winner, even if the winner had been determined on the technical aspects alone. Four of the judges had her first technically, and the fifth judge had her tied with Andreas and Matine.

    Default yeesh.

    you should have known that to ask if anky's was the best ride would provoke a fight.

    any opinion but "yes, of course" is going to be lambasted.

    did you all really want to discuss it, or just hear gushing?
