Lata Track, a sport complex located west of Moscow near the Krylatskoye are, has been designed almost 40 years ago for both, summer and winter sports.
The areal served as venue for the 1980 Moscow Olympic Summer Games with its 13.2 kilometres long biking track which was build together with a modern infrastructure with regards to the Olympics.
Ever since, the area has hosted various biking events and also serves as perfect training location for riders during the winter months with seven lifts in place for four different slopes.
While the complex is pretty unknown so far, Lata Track will step in the World Cup spot light in 2018.
