Only four competitions are on Fabian Hambuechen’s schedule for the first half of 2010.
- American Cup (6 March)
- German quali for the European Championships (17 April)
- European Championships (20-25 April)
- Japan Cup (3-4 July)
He won’t compete at the World Cup in Cottbus and as there won’t be a Champions Trophy this year he doesn’t have to compete at another four meets. Maybe that’s why they canceled the Champions Trophy (without Hambuechen it’s definitely less attractive)? And surely Hambuechen made this decision because of his bad luck just before the Worlds last year when he injured himself.
