Filmed with a GoPro HD Hero3 Black edition, with pictures taken every 60 seconds along the whole route this video shows the 3000 mile course of the 2013 Race Across America (RAAM).
The GoPro was on the dashboard of Chris ‘Hoppo’ Hopkinson’s support car, so you get to see the race, the garage and lots (and lots) of crew conversations!
RAAM – Race Across America. 10 days, 3000 miles on a bicycle.
It has been described as the toughest race in the world – and there really is very little like it on this planet.
Temperatures ranging from zero to +45 in just 9 hours!
Altitudes reach the dizzy heights of over 10,000ft
Athletes suffer through all kinds of weather, across time-zones, and reach further into their own bodies to complete this test of strength and fortitude.
If you ever get the chance to crew for it, do it!
