Day 3 of the Dragons Back Race is one of the toughest and is the longest day in the race that goes from North to South Wales via as many mountains as possible. The day is 68 km and has 3712m of height gain and after two huge days the strain was showing on the competitors. I was out all day filming the race from the air and this presented me with some real challenges, not least trying to tell the competitors apart so that I could film the runners on my shot list! The athletes are so fit it was difficult getting in front of them by road and so the whole day felt like a race to me too. A great day out though and the weather was kind to us, well done to all of the athletes taking part – its very impressive.

Here is a short from the days filming from Slackjaw Productions, it has been downscaled for Facebook.

Michel Roberge lends us a thought on the race from an overseas competitor’s point of view.
