It is very hot when I arrive in Malaucène, at the foot of the Ventoux, the summit of which is the third Checkpoint. Fortunately the climb is gentle and shaded on this side. From the Reynard chalet, the route is no longer free and I must follow the trail provided by the organization to reach Nice. After the rapid descent of Bedouin, it is the ascent of the moderately steep but very long Perty pass that awaits me. No respite after the descent since it is the mountain of Lure that I must climb now. At about halfway I stop for a few hours to sleep. I resume the ascent at dawn and, on this splendid road, do not meet a living soul to the top. If the immediate continuation of the course is devoid of col, the difference in height remains important. It is very hot in Provence, the succession of small bumps is difficult to manage.
