Cycling fans are in for a treat as 2Magpies Theatre tours its production of Ventoux – a dramatic retelling of one of the most memorable stage races in the history of the Tour de France. In 2000, Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantini, two giants of cycling, climbed Mont Ventoux in a relentless battle to win stage 12 of the Tour de France. Performed with two road bikes, real race commentary and stunning film footage captured by the company as they cycled up Mont Ventoux, the production recreates the 60-minute conflict with all the benefit of hindsight, charting the parallels of the riders’ early careers and the stark split in fortunes following the race.
