This tee celebrates the foreboding Mont Ventoux. The barren, windy and unforgiving slopes of Le Geant du Provence. First introduced to the the Tour De France in 1951, the Ventoux has achieved almost mythical status among cycling fans. The scene of some of the Tour's biggest stories across the years. The great Tommy Simpson's tragic 1967 tour. The GOAT, Eddy Merckx, requiring oxygen at the summit in 1970. The duel of Marco Pantani and Lance Armstrong in 1998. And more recently, Chris Froome's run up the final kilometre in 2016 after crashing. But what about 2021? On Weds 7th July Le Tour will take on a double ascent of the Ventoux - firstly from Sault, 24km at 5%; followed by a descent then the harder ascent from Bedoin, 16km at 7.4%. There will surely be another story told this year....
