Cycling up Mont Ventoux
Mont Ventoux, or the “Giant of Provence” is a mountain in the Provence region of Southern France located some 20 kilometers (12 miles) northeast of Carpentras. Although Ventoux is geologically part of the Alps, it is considered separate due to the lack of mountains nearby.
Mont Ventoux is a legendary mountain in the Tour de France. It has been ascended 14 times since 1951 and has been witness to dramatic scenes like the death of British cyclist Tom Simpson in 1967 who collapsed from exhaustion near the summit. In recent years it has been the stage for battles between Armstrong and Pantani and legendary solo breakaway wins of Richard Virenque and non-climber Eros Poli.
