Sean Sako & Francis Cade take on Mont. Ventoux

Seize The Moment is a motto that Sean Sako lives by. It was this impulsive decision making that led Sean and video documentarian Francis Cade to France for an exploration of the giant of Provence. Steeped in folklore one of cycling's most famous climbs has seen many incredible performances - Armstrong, Pantini, Virenque, Merckx, Simpson, Poulidor and Gaul to name a few - and now Sako and Cade add their names to that list, dragging themselves up Mont Ventoux in a battle of wit if not wills.

Will Sean's ketogenic diet give him enough fuel to last the distance? Will Francis figure out what 'route barre' means? Will Sean figure out how to turn the car lights off? 

In this 5-part documentary Sean and Francis discover their cycling paradise, touring the region to sample as much local culture as they can. On and off the beaten track, local wine, cheese and coffee are heavily sampled because when Sean says 'carpe diem' you do as he says!
