Vuelta 2017 free online live stream – watch here all stages!
Arguably the most physically demanding of the three Grand Tours, combining brutally steep climbs with searing heat and the lion’s share of a season’s racing already in the legs, the 2017 Vuelta a Espana rolls out of Nimes Saturday the 19th before meandering its way across the Spanish countryside, arriving in Madrid three weeks later.
The 2017 edition of the race boasts a star-studded GC line-up, with all three Tour de France podium finishers – Chris Froome (Team Sky), Bardet (Ag2R) and Uran (Cannondale) – in attendance. Vincenzo Nibali will also take to the start line.
As has been tradition in recent Vueltas, the race starts with a Team Time Trial along the French coast on Saturday, while Sunday’s stage from Nîmes (Fra) to Gruissan (Fra) is the first opportunity for the fast riders in the peloton. Monday it will be the first test for the climbers to grab a stage win and the GC contenders to test their legs.
In the UK, British Eurosport has live television coverage of Saturday’s Team Time Trial from 5:45pm BST and Sunday’s Stage 2 from 3pm BST. ITV4 will show highlights of every day’s racing at 7pm BST, with the exception of Saturday’s TTT, which will be shown at 10pm BST.
In the US, Universal Sports Network has live coverage of Saturday’s TTT from 1pm Eastern and coverage of each stage thereafter from 10am Eastern, starting with Sunday’s Stage 2.
