Virtual Haute Route Ventoux is three challenging races over the course of three days, 18-20 September, on the virtual Zwift racing platform.
With real world Mont Ventoux weather conditions rather challenging, 9C with 100kmh wind during the races, climbing Mont Ventoux virtually on a stationary bike in the basement just might be a bit “easier.”
Stage 2 of Virtual Haute Route Ventoux had over 2000 cyclists race up Mont Ventoux (Ven-Top on Zwift), one of the most iconic and massive climbs in cycling history. 21km long with 1535m vertical ascent it challenges even the most capable riders.
The record for climbing Mont Ventoux (Bédoin to radio tower summit) in person belongs to professional rider Iban Mayo who climbed it in 0:55:21.
