Chock and Bates to start new chapter at U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit
The past 10 months has proven to be circuitous journey for ice dancers Madison Chock and Evan Bates.
It started in Novi, headed north to Montreal, then to Poland and now they will return to Detroit to compete in the U.S. Figure Skating Championships this week at Little Caesars Arena.
