Giro d’Italia 2022 how to watch every cycling stage online anywhere

Who will claim the Maglia Rosa in the first Grand Tour of the season?

The 2022 Giro d’Italia is underway and the fight for the pink jersey is on. Ecuador’s Richard Carapaz and Britain’s Simon Yates are among the favourites as the riders ready themselves for the 105th edition of this iconic Grand Tour cycling race. It’s the first Grand Tour of the season and one that no self respecting cycling fan will want to miss. Get planning for three glorious weeks of cycling on TV. Here’s how to watch a 2022 Giro d’Italia online from anywhere.

Spanning 21 stages, featuring six sprints, six substantial climbs and two individual time trials, the 2022 Giro d’Italia race’s schedule is arguably the most demanding of the entire season, with one stage even including a calf-shredding trip up Mount Etna.

Injuries sustained in a training crash in January sadly means Egan Bernal won’t be back this this year to defend his title. Alongside Carapaz and Yates, 2017 champion Tom Dumoulin is the most likely rider set to capitalise on the Colombian’s absence.

This year’s edition kicks off in the Hungarian capital of Budapest then takes in the sights of the Italian mainland via a stint on the island of Sicily before ending with a time trial around Verona.

Stage 16 also sees the return of the Mortirolo – a stage name likely to strike fear into even the most battle-hardened rider, thanks to its torturous 13.5km finishing climb. Read on for everything you need to know on how to watch a 2022 Giro d’Italia from anywhere in the world.
