Where you can watch every minute of racing at the Vuelta a España 2022

The final Grand Tour of the year, the Vuelta a España, begins on Friday August 19 and we're set for a thrilling three weeks of action.

This year's race begins in the Netherlands with a team time trial, before the lowlands provides some uncharacteristically flat stages to the Vuelta for the following two days, enough to tempt some sprinters into showing up on the start line.

The Vuelta then returns to its homeland for the remaining stages and a feast of climbing for us to enjoy watching. It all concludes on Sunday September 11 with a final flat stage to the Spanish capital, Madrid, where the 2022 Vuelta a España winner will be crowned.
