Paris–Nice kicks off this Sunday, so if you want to follow the action, here’s everything we know about where you can find live coverage and highlights in the UK, US and Australia.
This is the 77th edition of Paris–Nice since it started way back in 1933. It’s an eight-stage race that covers a total of 1,206km of riding, beginning with an out-and-back stage in Saint-Germain-en-Laye and culminating with the famous Col d’Eze in Nice.
While the first three days are relatively flat, there will be plenty of climbs in the latter half of the race, with the penultimate stage concluding with a 15km ascent at a 7.3 percent gradient up the Turini Pass.
If you’re a gradient geek, you’ll be pleased to find elevation profiles for each of the stages below.
