Spring season is in full flow at the moment, with the spring Classics well underway following Milan-San Remo at the weekend. Nestled among them this week comes the Volta a Catalunya, and if you’re looking for a way to watch the action this week we’ve put together a handy Volta a Catalunya live stream guide.

The 101st edition of the race kicks off on Monday, March 21, continuing for a week around the north-eastern Spanish region. The race will take in high mountains in the Pyrenees and several challenging hilly sprint stages before finishing with the traditional Barcelona stage in Montjuïc Park.

The start list doesn’t boast Tadej Pogačar or Primož Roglič, but there are plenty of big names in Catalunya ready to do battle over seven days’ of racing.

2021 winner Adam Yates isn’t back to defend his title, but his team Ineos Grenadiers have put out a very strong team, including 2021 runner-up Richie Porte, Olympic champion Richard Carapaz, and Pavel Sivakov.
