The Tour of Flanders is only days away and the first major peak of the 2022 Spring Classics. 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 heading towards their grand finale on Sunday, with the men’s and women’s Tour of Flanders capping off two weeks of cobbled racing in the country. The Monument is one of the biggest races of the year and is the penultimate cobbled Classic of the season prior to Paris-Roubaix.

Both men and women will face similar routes featuring famous hills such as the Koppenberg, Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg before a flat 13km run to the line in Oudenaarde.
