The 2022 Spring Classics are underway, and if you’re looking for a way to watch the action in the coming month we’ve put together a handy Classics live stream guide.

The series of one-day races in Belgium, France, and Italy packing the calendar through March and April bring four Monuments throughout the spring: Milan-San Remo, the Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, and Liège-Bastogne-Liège, but there’s plenty of other upcoming racing to look forward to as well.

Belgium’s spring Classics are well underway following racing at the Classic Brugge-De Panne and the E3 Saxo Bank Classic. Sunday, March 27 will bring another cobbled race as the men’s and women’s peloton take on the Kemmelberg at Gent-Wevelgem and Gent-Wevelgem Women.

In the women’s race, the riders will tackle the famous cobbled Kemmelberg climb twice along with two ascents of the Scherpenberg and Baneberg during the 159km race. The men will hit the Kemmelberg three times along with two ascents of the Scherpenberg and Baneberg, while three gravel ‘plug street’ sectors also lie on the 249km route.
