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!

    Track! http://www.redbullcrashedice.com/en_INT/video/moscow-track-explanation

    It looks good, the bit at the end, wide and with a sprint to the finish might be good.

  • Janna08/03/2014 at 15:08

    Hello all, running order for Round of 64 here http://www.redbullcrashedice.com/en_INT/results on the Finals tab. Looks likes the Croxalls and Dallagos are drawn far enough apart that they don't meet their brothers until later in the competition.

    Good for you, have you tweeted a sponsorship link??

  • Lukeh08/03/2014 at 15:40

    Good for you, have you tweeted a sponsorship link??

    Bizarrely we don't seem to have an open sponsorship. My friend is getting the details sorted but he said the entry donation required to Sports Relief from us as runners is the only sponsorship they ask for.

  • Janna08/03/2014 at 15:50

    on board camera makes the track look really narrow

  • Steven Roy08/03/2014 at 15:51

    From some angles that looks like a very wide finish area

  • Steven Roy08/03/2014 at 15:51

    on board camera makes the track look really narrow

    Maybe that is why the finish looked wide

    Bonus shot of Scotty

    He is going to beat big brother in the championship this year

  • Steven Roy08/03/2014 at 15:59

    The big bump on the left hander reminds me of the bump on the run from Casino Square to Mirabeau at Monaco

  • Christine08/03/2014 at 15:59

    He is going to beat big brother in the championship this year

    It's about time!

  • Christine08/03/2014 at 16:02

    Did the commentator just say: "These guys had an interesting story to tell in the hotel the other night?"

    Cos you can't just say that and then move on.

  • Janna08/03/2014 at 16:02

    Looks like the track conditions are horrible but it's making for a good race

    (Cut & paste this comment to F1 sometime this year)

  • Steven Roy08/03/2014 at 16:02

    Did the commentator just say: "These guys had an interesting story to tell in the hotel the other night?"

    Yes but I didn't catch why

  • Janna08/03/2014 at 16:03

    "A little bit of a garage sale" What??

  • Christine08/03/2014 at 16:03

    Yes but I didn't catch why

    I don't think he said why. Mean.

  • Janna08/03/2014 at 16:07

    Schwinghammer is a great name

  • Steven Roy08/03/2014 at 16:07

    Never seen so many people go down at the start and never get close to the rest later in the race

  • Christine08/03/2014 at 16:08

    Schwinghammer is a great name

    I love that they have to use such tiny text to fit it in :)

  • Steven Roy08/03/2014 at 16:08

    Schwinghammer is a great name

    That is a cracker. Shame he is not a hammer thrower

  • Janna08/03/2014 at 16:10

    Loving that's it's impossible to call even at this stage with all the people falling over

  • Pat W08/03/2014 at 16:11

    Looked faster than some previous runs.

    Or maybe less of an effort since they had a lead

  • Lukeh08/03/2014 at 16:12
