TDF 2009 Stage 20 Day on Bald Mountain

Nicknamed “Bald Mountain,” or “Baldy,” Mount Ventoux is not a particularly high mountain, belying it’s other nickname, “the Giant of Provence.” But it is arid, its limestone slopes devoid of trees and vegetation, mean, and can be seen from just about all parts of the Provence.

It has gained notoriety for stage finishes in the Tour de France, and this year of the “epic Tour,” it will most likely be where the final stamp on the maillot jaune will be hammered.

It should be an exciting day. I’ll be back…
