However, there was a trip to Florida on the agenda before Bedford was next on the itinerary. In fact, a.team4way traveled to Arizona first for a training camp with coach Thomas Hughes. The Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship 2013 concluded the spring visit in the USA.
The 15.3 average in DeLand at the team's first outdoor meet of the year came with ten point deductions and was still on the same level where a.team4way had finished off the 2012 outdoor season. Then came the successful trip to Bedford and back home to Russia.

In addition to the slow sequences, five of the ten rounds also brought slot switchers to the teams in Kolomna.
Barkli completed only two rounds and had to withdraw when Tail Vladimir Pavlenko came down with a serious cold. It offered a.team4way the opportunity to win the 1st place. SportLoto could not attend the meet since Katya Kharitonova's brother Andrey Kharitonov is working abroad this year and was not available for his team.
