3rd Red Bull Crashed Ice Track from NUSSLI
Harbor city Marseille hosted the fascinating speed skating event organized by Red Bull Crashed Ice on January 14 and 15, 2017. NUSSLIs team created for the 3rd time, after Munich and Lausanne, a challenging Crashed Ice race track in the middle of the city.
Four skaters started the track that began at the terrace of the well-known hotel Intercontinental, and finished in front of the Marseille City Hall. The aim is to compete with the other skaters with the greatest speed, and finish the extreme track with sharp turns, high vertical drops, and other hazards as quick as possible. The athletes make daredevil jumps and reach speeds of up to 80 km/h.
NUSSLI was commissioned for the construction of the 340 m long ramp, which included elevation differences of up to 26 m, as well as the assembly of four lighting towers, a podium, and nine television platforms. The situation of having to assemble the structure in the middle of the city often complicated loading and unloading.
