The mayor of Bedoin confirms he will attend the Tour de France route presentation - a strong hint that Mont Ventoux will host the 2016 race

Mont Ventoux featured heavily in the 2015 Tour de France, what with the videos circulating claiming to show Chris Froome’s power data while climbing the mountain in the 2013 edition.

Froome’s winning ride on the mountain was the last time it has featured in the Tour route, but reports suggest that the race will head back to the mountain in Provence in 2016.

One of the Tour’s most iconic mountains could feature on one of the most iconic days of the race – Bastille Day, the French national day.
