The fourth of six ISU Grand Prix events takes place in Bordeaux, France and qualifications to the Grand Prix Final are at stake

The Trophée Eric Bompard (TEB) event takes place Nov. 13th through 15th and the schedule, entries and results can be found on this ISU website.

Skate Canada has published an article on the Canadian team participating in TEB.

The French team will be without Florent Amodio in the men's competition (ankle injury) and world champion ice dancers Gabrielle Papadakis & Guillaume Cizeron. She is still recovering from a concussion suffered in training some time ago and they have withdrawn from both of their GP events (TEB and the NHK Trophy) but plan to skate in the French Championships in mid-December. As the withdrawals were very recent, there will be no replacements for these skaters.

CBC will be providing TV coverage of the TEB as part of their "Road to the Olympics" series on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. They will also be providing live streaming of the free skates in all four disciplines on Saturday and of the Gala on Sunday. Their schedule (in EST) can be found here.

We are now past the half-way point in the GP series for this season and some skaters have already qualified for the GPF in December while other qualifiers may be determined this weekend as skaters take part in their second event. You can check the standings, by discipline, here.
