Le Club des Cinglés du Mont-Ventoux
There is a club called "Le Club des Cinglés du Mont-Ventoux", meaning "The club of the mad men from Mont Ventoux".
To be part of this club you need to achieve the following :
- the ascent of the Mont Ventoux from the three main roads : Bédoin, Malaucène et Sault
- the three climbs have to be done in the same day. The choice of the order in which you do the climbs and the date are entirely yours.
On Thursday 5th June 2014, Darragh Hammond from Ireland has achieved this, together with 3 mades. They were lucky as able to catch a very good day weather wise, as the photo shows.
Congratulations to Darragh and his mades for this huge achievement !
