Ventoux, presented here by 2Magpies, tells the differing life stories of Marco Pantani and Lance Armstrong during the 2000 Tour de France.
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 greatest that the world of cycling had ever seen. Ventoux charts the parallel lives of these two champions who overcame great adversity in tandem, and the mountain that cast them in opposing directions.
Join 2Magpies Theatre Company as they re-stage that momentous race using breathtaking video accompaniment and a pair of road bikes, asking the question – how far will we go to succeed?
