Pyrenees Multisport, as one of the official Tour Operators for the HAUTE ROUTE and with our 15 years of tour organisation and support we will provide you a seamless experience for your challenge to climb the three sides of Mont Ventoux over this three day event.  Not just to climb this legendary mountain but to be involved in a “Pro Style” stage race consisting of two road stages and an Individual Time Trial (ITT).
