A restaging of a dramatic Tour de France race between Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani is coming to the Cambridge Junction on April 26.

Ventoux tells the story of the two giants of cycling who climbed Mount Ventoux in a dramatic battle to win stage 12 of the Tour in 2000.

The production is performed with two road bikes, real race commentary, and stunning film footage captured by the theatre company as they cycled up the notorious mountain.

The roles are taken on by Alexander Gatehouse, playing Armstrong, and Tom Barnes, who, as well as being artistic director, will play Pantani.

Tickets for the performance at the Cambridge Junction at £12 and £8 for concessions.

The show starts at 7.30pm, and can be booked on 01223 511511 or at junction.co.uk.
