TDF Stage 12 PREVIEW: Thursday the Tour de France will climb Mt. Ventoux, it's a mythical place, steeped in history and the site of many great battles. Remember Armstrong vs Pantani in 2000? Or Eros Poli in 1994 when he lost 15 minutes on the mountain but still won the stage. In 2013 we added another battle to the history books as PEZ's Chris Selden took on 30 other journos from around the world in climbing Mt. Ventoux.
