How to watch the 2020 Vuelta a España – Live streams from anywhere

Better late than never: the 2020 Vuelta a España gets underway in the Basque Country on October 20 after the coronavirus pandemic forced most of the calendar into less than four months of racing.

The final Grand Tour of 2020 has been reduced to 18 stages after the cancellation of the opening days in the Netherlands but that only means that all of the toughest stages have been condensed into a shorter time frame with no room for error.

Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) is looking to redeem himself with a spirited defence of his title after a shocking and morale-busting defeat at the hands of compatriot Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) at the Tour de France. The Slovenian is joined by a wrecking crew of a team, with Tom Dumoulin, George Bennett, Robert Gesink and Sepp Kuss joining him in the Tour-Vuelta double.

With Pogacar out of the picture for the rest of the 2020 season, Roglič’s main rivals include Ineos Grenadiers’ Richard Carapaz, Enric Mas and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar), Daniel Martinez (EF Pro Cycling), Esteban Chaves (Mitchelton-Scott) and Aleksandr Vlasov (Astana), and maybe, if his form has returned, even former Vuelta a España winner Chris Froome (Ineos).

There aren’t very many flat stages but when there are, it will be Tour de France green jersey Sam Bennett (Deceuninck-Quickstep) going head-to-head with Pascal Ackermann (Bora-Hansgrohe), Jasper Philipsen (UAE Team Emirates) and up-and-coming sprinters like Alex Aranburu (Astana) and Matteo Moschetti (Trek-Segafredo).

Cyclingnews will have full live reports, with news and photos from inside of the race as it happens, along with extensive reporting on the stage and its players throughout the final week of the race. We’re also your go-to place for results, photos and highlights once the stage is done.
