Ciaslat, the pickle-hard washboard

While the jump over the Camel Humps is probably the most thrilling part of the Saslong, the passage on the pickle-hard washboard of the Ciaslat is the one that requires the highest level of skills. If the racer doesn’t get the turns just right, he might as well go packing.

But it isn’t just the Camel Humps and the Ciaslat that have made the Saslong a classic. This is the whole package: 3,446 meters (the Saslong is the second longest track in the entire World Cup circuit), 839 altitude change, nine jumps, 17 larger bumps, several precipices and an energy-sapping flat section.
