- The second competition of the StarClass series was held from 15-17 November 2019 in Lausanne-Switzerland. It was the first StarClass competition of the season for the Juniors A/B and Seniors and was very successful organized by the Club des Patineurs de Lausanne et Malley. 170 skaters from 46 clubs out of 11 countries attended this event. Among them, because the competition was also a ISU Junior Challenge, were skaters from Malaysia and Australia. For the volunteers of Lausanne it was the first time ever that they organized a Shorttrack competition which was a good training event for them as they also organize the shorttrack competition for the Youth Olympic Winter Games in January 2020.
Michelle Velzeboer (STB-NED), Daan Kos (STB-NED), Luca Spechenhauser (FOM-ITA), Elisa Confortola (FOM-ITA) and Sven Roes (TRL-NED) are the winners of this first StarClass competition. The Ladies Juniors A and Seniors were skated as a combined event but for the Overall StarClass classification a seperate Overall Classification for Ladies Seniors is made: 1st Emma van Zuijlen (IHCL-NED), 2nd Sara van Zuijlen (IHCL-NED) and 3rd Federica Apolloni (FTP-ITA).
