3. Mont Ventoux from Bédoin

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

Ventoux

The aim of the game is to go as hard as you can for this classic time trial. With a rolling start out of Bedoin, the first six kilometres should get your legs ready for the section ahead. After the hairpin bend at Saint-Estève, the average gradient kicks up to above 10% and refuses to ease up for the next five kilometres. Whilst the road does ease off slightly towards Chalet Reynard, the Giant of Provence is not done with you yet, throwing up a tough six-kilometre section all the way to the summit finish.
