The Crashed Ice championship returns to the wintry climes of Russia, as Moscow prepares to host the third round of the 2014 season. Having not been to the country since 2011, there are plenty of those new to the city, and to the track situated on the banks of the Moskva river. Apparently, the last visit to Russia was the coldest in ice cross downhill history, "with temperatures plunging as low as a bone-chilling minus 30 degrees celsius." I don't envy the skaters or anyone in the crowds!
