Jeremy Roy’s on-bike camera footage of Tour Down Under stage three (video)

Camera mounted on French pro Jeremy Roy's bike during stage three of the Tour Down Under gives insight into a rider's experience of the race

French FDJ pro Jeremy Roy has posted the latest instalment of his on-bike video footage of the 2015 Tour Down Under.

Roy’s films give a rider’s-eye view of the inside of the peloton, the speed that the rider navigate twisting roads and the proximity of other riders in the scrum of the bunch.

One aspect of the film that shows how fast the bunch are travelling – even up hill – is when they pass a dropped rider, who literally look like they are going backwards.

On-bike camera footage is likely to become more commonplace, with the UCI and team association Velon currently looking into the possibility of integrating on-bike shots into race coverage. FDJ is not currently a member of Velon.

Australian Rohan Dennis (BMC) won stage three of the Tour Down Under, and took the overall lead. Roy finished 35th on the stage.
