This is wicked, it’s not everyday you stumble upon an abandoned Skeleton track in the woods. Ride with Richard Gasperotti as he takes a ride out in the Ore Mountains.
This is how Richard Gasperotti enjoyed the 1007m long track with 8 curves and 2 long straights in Czech Republic! Various buildings made of concrete were on the increase in the Czech Republic during the era of communism. That’s why a skeleton track (think Bobsleds) was built near the little town Klasterec nad Ohri in the Ore mountains.
The track is 1007m long, has 8 curves, 2 long straights, and was built in 1975. After the Velvet revolution in 1989 the track has become overgrown with a forest cover. The color of concrete has turned moss green. Some bumps and damaged parts haven’t withstood the ravages of time. Nowadays the track is being preserved for a Czech Olympian and his summer luge training. However, it is also a drug addicts’ meeting spot and local weirdos like rambling around neighbouring forests, which is the place where no one wants to stay overnight. When we saw this spot for the first time it seemed crazy, just…K!LL H!LL.
The track was discovered by photographer, Mila S. while doing a nude photoshoot and he made us think about breathing life into this place, at least for a while…
