Why this event?

A course steeped in cycling history

The Haute Route Ventoux gives you the opportunity to explore the “Giant of Provence” and the quiet, rolling country roads along its base. The Compact course features fewer kilometres (90-100km) and less elevation gain (1,700-2,200M+), and will ascend to the summit of Mont Ventoux on Stage 3 via typical Tour de France route. Almost the entire course is timed, and you'll experience the thrill of climbing to a professional summit finish line in front of fans.
