The 2013 Masters are the first appointment of the season for the French skaters and will be held from October 3-5, 2013 in Orleans, France. The skaters are going to test their programs, with a view to the Olympic Games of Sochi. But the skaters programs aren't the only thing that is going to be tested at these 2013 Masters. In fact, during the Short Dance competition, for the first time in the world, we will see takes from the hawk-eye, which should help us to better understand the judges' scores, and the skaters to question them with better proofs.
In the men field, Brian Joubert decided not to compete at these Masters.
