Autumn Classic International 2021 – Preview

The second of the nine Challenger Series events is Autumn Classic and takes place in Pierrefonds, Quebec, Canada from the 16th-18th September.

Here’s a rundown of who you can expect to see competing at this event and some information about them.

Originally the Pairs event was not part of the Challenger, but the event was upgraded due to the number of withdrawals in the Men’s competition making it unviable. 3 viable disciplines are required for an ISU Challenger competition.
