Mont Ventoux Challenge
Mont Ventoux was made famous from it's inclusion in the Tour de France and now has a race all of it's own. The dénivelé challenge takes place on the 6th August and is acting as a warm up to this years Tour.
Located in the South of France, it is the highest mountain in this part of the country measuring 1909m and has a distinctive meteorological station constructed at the summit. Nicknamed the 'Beast of Provence' or the 'Bald Mountain' due to the mountain's barren peak appear from a distance to be snow-capped all year round.
