What's it like to race a reindeer?

Each year people race reindeer on the frozen surface of Lake Inari in the far north of Finland and the winner at the end of the season is crowned the 'Reindeer King'.

Only the wildest and fastest reindeer are chosen for racing and they can reach speeds of up to 60 km/hour.
