Luge World Cup stage in Sigulda

From February 14 to 15, the Sigulda Bobsleigh Track in the Latvian town of Sigulda will host a Luge World Cup stage.


The 2014/2015 Luge World Cup season will feature a total of nine stages in six different countries.


The Sigulda Bobsleigh Track was built in 1986, and holds various bobsleigh, luge and skeleton events throughout the season. The track is 1,420 meters long and features 16 curves. The tracks maximum speed is 125 km/h.


The Sigulda Bobsleigh and Luge Track is one of the rare tracks in the world open for visitors year-round. Persons can also go atop the track’s viewing platform on the sixth-floor level, where they will be able to take in a breathtaking view of the Gauja River Valley, as well as observe the track from top to finish.


During the winter season (October to March), it is possible to go down the track using a ‘Vučko’ – a special bob used for sliding tourists down the track. It is also possible to go down the track with a real bobsleigh as well during the winter season. However, during the summer season, tourists can slide down the track using a special summer bob (May to September).
