Summit of Mont Ventoux about a kilometre from the end of the 2009 Etape du Tour.  Perfect weather this time.  Starting from number 8710 I was in the last group of 1000 to set off, and when the 500 riders behind me jumped into the next door starting pen, I started last of the 9500 riders!  Bad start and it meant a lot of overtaking, but had a great day out and finished about 2000th.
