Mont Ventoux is a legendary mountain. The Giant of Provence looms large over both the surrounding landscape and cycling folklore. It's remoteness alone make it memorable for anyone who has ridden it but Tom Simpson's death on it's moon-like, barren upper slopes in the 1967 Tour de France elevated it to achieve almost mythic status.
You have to be committed to ride it. Burning sun and epic gales regularly dog progress to the summit but each year some choose to ride up it not just once, but once up each approach road; three ascents in total. Those that achieve the feat in a single day join the small band who call themselves Cinglés du Mont Ventoux. Cinglés means Crackpots..
