Stage 12 - July 13: Carpentras - Mont Ventoux, 149 km

Il Grande Pantani returns - Armstrong powers once again

33 years to the day that British cyclist Tommy Simpson died on Le Mount Ventoux, Marco Pantani's win provided a rebirth for the dynamic Italian climber. Today's win by Marco Pantani (Mercatone Uno) on Le Mont Ventoux was a suprise for most; Pantani look like he had been dropped on the front group of 6 with 7km to go, but the gutsy bald Italian battled his way back to the front group and together with le Maillot Lance Armstrong (USPS), simply rode away from the rest to give Pantani the stage win and Armstrong an ever more solid grip on victory in the 2000 Tour De France.

As the mistral began to blow across Provence, Stage 12 started in a nervous way. La bagarre commenced immediately, when Jens Voigt (Credit Agricole) attacked and was joined in the early going by Erik Dekker (Rabobank). When these two went, Telekom began to ride hard tempo behind and this split the peloton in two after only 10km. 40 ahead including le Maillot Armstrong (USPS) and 120 behind by 10". However, Kelme quickly closed this gap down in a few klicks and on the early slopes of the first climb, le Col de Murs, stage 7 winner Christophe Agnolutto (AG2R Preyvoyance) attacked and took a 15" margin on the peloton.

Pascal Herve (Polti) attacked early after Agnolutto and his move was quickly covered by Arrietta and Garcia Costa (Banesto), Botero (Kelme), Nicolas Jalabert (O.N.C.E.), Mattan (Cofidis), Vinokorouv (Telekom) and Kivilev (AG2R). These 8 riders bridged up to Agnolutto just over the summit of le Col de Murs after 42km of racing and a good group of 9 formed on the race to the summit of Le Mont Ventoux.

Across the next 70 km, the distance to the break and the peloton grew to up to 4' but as the Banesto team went to the front to set up an attack by Jose Maria Jimenez, the gap began to fall. With 21km to race in Bedoin at the foot of Le Mont Ventoux, the gap was under 2 minutes and as the chasing peloton approached the sharp lefthand bend in St. Esteve that signaled the start of the steep section of Mont Ventoux, USPS had taken over the chase. First Tyler Hamilton, then Kevin Livingston did yeoman's work up front for Lance, while behind, Jimenez, Zülle, Escartin (Kelme) and Moreau (Festina) simply dropped off the intense pace of the front runners on the wooded forest road.

With 10km to race, the front group had been whittled down to 6 riders, composed of Armstrong (USPS), Heras and Botero (Kelme), Virenque (Polti), Beloki (Festina) and Jan Ullrich (Telekom), with Marco Pantani yo-yoing off the back of this group. Ullrich made most of the tempo going up, and when the steep Ventoux climb leveled out a bit at Chalet Reynard with 6.5k to go, Pantani made it back to the front group for good.

Chalet Reynard is just above the treeline on Le Mont Ventoux at 1410 meters above sea level and it's where the riders are exposed to the full force of the fierce, biting mistral wind. Suddenly Pantani attacked, his fierce acceleration put the hurt on the other front runners, notably Richard Virenque, who went out the back almost immediately. Pantani attacked three more times and eventually got a good gap with 3km to race, a gap that chaser Heras couldn't close. Suddenly from the back of the break came Armstrong, driving to the front and accelerating past Ullrich to bridge up to the disappearing Italian before he could do a Houdini.

With 2.5km left to race, Armstrong and Pantani had ridden away from the rest and at the final summit sprint, the rejuvinated Italian slipped ahead of Le Maillot Jaune to win the epoch stage to the summit of Le Mont Ventoux. Suprising Joseba Beloki was third to leap into the same spot on GC with a solid ride by Ullrich for 4th. Big losers were Jimenez, who was 10" down, and Zülle and Escartin who lost over 3'.
