Germany will host this seasons bobsled and skeleton world championships, which were pulled out of Russia after numerous competitors considered a boycott in response to that nations widespread doping program. Nike Air Presto Nere .Koenigssee was the track selected by the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation for the championships, which will be held Feb. 13-26 -- even though some nations felt they could be moved a week earlier. Koenigssee will also host a weekend of World Cup racing in January.Sochi lost the hosting rights last week in the fallout of the Russian doping scandal.
