Mont Ventoux Shield Sweatshirt

Mont Ventoux is legendary as the scene of one of the most grueling climbs, the soaring mountain with it's arduous street biking trail made famous in the Tour de France race.Mont Ventoux ascent is 21.4 km long. Over this distance, you climb 1639 heightmeters
A magnet for cyclists around the world, nemesis for most, accomplishment for some.  Wear the Tee as inspiration, aspiration or just plain pride for those hard-core cyclists.

 

So how high is it?  🤔 

In 1823, the French engineer Joseph Delcros was the first to accurately measure the height of Ventoux, arriving at 1911 metres (it was assumed to be much higher).

Over the years we have seen official signs saying 1909m, 1910m and 1912m.  Currently all signs at the top seem to say 1912 metres - as does the official Tour de France profile.

On the other hand, when we zoom the latest IGN (official French government) maps they say 1911 metres.  But apparently a recent geological survey says it is 1899 metres. 😵

If you have climbed it, I’d go with the higher summit 👍🚵🚵‍♀️ .

The men’s crew neck raglan sweatshirt is cut in premium 350gsm Terry cotton, 85% organic cotton, 15% recycled polyester, looks great with jeans or shorts, to pull on as the evening gets colder, bold detailed print finishes this sweatshirt perfectly for any occasion.

Our sweatshirts are MEDIUM FIT

Matt is 6ft with a 40" chest and of a slim muscular build and is wearing a Small.

- Raglan sleeve

- Inside herringbone back neck tape

- Self fabric half moon at back neck
