They took part in one Grand Prix event during the 2011–2012 season, the 2011 Cup of Russia, and they were the fourth. Since the winners of this championship Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov could not take part in the European Championships because of the quarantine of a partner related to the change of citizenship, Gerboldt and Enbert entered the national team for the tournament. There they also became the fourth.
