Stage 12 of the 2016 Tour de France has gone down in history after a bizarre incident saw Chris Froome running up Mont Ventoux to try and hang on to his Yellow Jersey lead after breaking his bike. But did Chris chose the best strategy given his situation? What could he have done better? The GCN team have found a steep hill in Wales to try to answer this very question!
