A monster awakes, waiting to swallow the weakests contestants who going to try to climb him. Is the Mont Ventoux going to trill or to kill the 100th Tour de France ?

Hi everyone  Mont Ventoux is a mountain in the Provence region of southern France. At 1912 m, it is the highest mountain in the region and has been nicknamed the "Beast of Provence", the "Giant of Provence". It has gained fame through its inclusion in the Tour de France cycling race.

The wind blows at 90+...
