We present more live men’s and women’s cycling than any other broadcaster including over 1,000 races per year but there is no bigger stage for the sport than a Grand Tour and we can’t wait to get started.

He added, “the Giro d’Italia comes hot on the wheels of our La Vuelta Femenina and Classics coverage and so many new stories from this spectacular sport are yet to be told as the season unfolds. As well as being the only place to watch every minute of every Grand Tour in Europe, our channels and platforms, including Max which shows live sport in Europe for the first time this month in addition to covering cycling in USA, will also be the only places where fans can enjoy every cycling event from Olympic Games Paris 2024 this summer.”
