Check out the latest video update from Trans Provence as the riders make their way over the trails

It’s Day 3 of Trans-Provence and day 3 is the day that things got physical.

With a 500 metre carry as part of the first Special Stage the riders were most certainly being pushed to their limits as they either push or carry their bikes uphill.

The descent is no friendlier but speedier as the riders are almost fired onto the valley floor which is then followed by a road climb to the feed station, things only got more brutal from then on in.

Cube Action Team’s Nicholas Lau maintained his lead today with last years winner Jérôme Clementz keeping in hot pursuit in second coming in four seconds after Lau. Nicholas Vouilloz also stayed in the third place.

Ann-Caroline Chausson is leading the women’s race followed by Rosara Joseph and Anka Martin.

We also meet the mountain staff who enable the race to happen as they check the riders in and out at each stage, stay tuned for more action tomorrow with day 4.
