2016: the Tour de France is back to Mont Ventoux!
At the top of the Mont Ventoux hangs a huge poster with the names of all the cyclists that won a Tour de France stage on the top of this "Giant of Provence". Which one of these winners would be the greatest climber of them all?
The documentary feature The King of Mont Ventoux puts 5 cycling heroes against each other in an unprecedented Virtual Race beyond the bounds of time. Starting the archive footage of these 5 races together at the foot of the giant, they battle it out in this Virtual Race over the 21-km ascent along a winding forest road to the lunar-like summit of the 'Bald Mountain'; a gruelling one-hour test of endurance and strength. The first to reach the summit is crowned King of Mont Ventoux
