In 1982, coach Stanislav Zhuk broke up their partnership and partnered Kadyrkaev with Marina Cherkasova. However, that partnership did not last and Kadyrkaev moved to Leningrad to skate with Elena Kvitchenko.
Kvitchenko & Kadyrkaev were coached by Tamara Moskvina and Igor Moskvin. During their career, they won the 1987 Winter Universiade and competed at both the World Figure Skating Championships and European Figure Skating Championships. They were the 1989 Soviet Figure Skating Championships silver medalists. They turned professional in 1989 and toured with the Ice Capades.
