Ryan skated pretty well, though not perfect. Hopefully he'll skate even better in the free! Great program!!

So I just read that Ryan Bradley came in 9th after the free skate. I can't watch it so I'm wondering if someone else who did knows what happened. Did he fall or something...or were the other skaters just that strong?
I posted some thoughts in the TEB thread in Basic Skating. He had a lot of issues with his jumps--stepping out, turning on landings. Looked like he was having a major checking problem. His program itself was good. I think it's going to take some work though! I think he can be a very strong skater but in the past I've noticed that some elements--namely spins--aren't as strong. They look better this year though. He's not the top level skater in the bunch but he certainly can skate with the best!

I love Ryan for his great entertaining qualities But at TEB, his jumps were pretty much off and all in all, both of the programs looked strained :/ I don´t think the style he chose for this season suits him too well, unfortunately.
