Ventoux

Ventoux is the most fearsome mountain encountered on the Tour de France. 

It is also the story of Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani – whose drug-fuelled race there in 2000 was the most dramatic the cycling world had ever seen. Ventoux charts the parallel lives of these champions who overcame great adversity in tandem. 

Join 2Magpies as they restage the race using breathtaking video accompaniment and a pair of road bikes, as they ask the question – how far will we go to succeed?
