Mont Ventoux from Malaucène

Malaucène, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France

Haute Route Climbing Challenge

Make sure you are fuelled-up before you set off from Malaucène, as you prepare for the 21km ascent. With an average gradient of 7.5%, don’t be fooled into going too hard too early, at around the halfway point, the road kicks up to 11% for three kilometres. There is nowhere to hide on this straight section of road but grind through and look forward to upcoming relief, with the road flattening out to 4% for the following few kilometres. In true Mont Ventoux style, the final kilometres ramp up again, sticking above 8% to test you on this famous climb that has pushed many Tour de France legends to their limit.
