The Vuelta, also known as the Tour of Spain, was created in 1935 and still promises many twists and turns. The cyclists have six stages left to try and turn things around, although it will probably be difficult to surpass the Dutch Team Jumbo-Visma team currently dominating the race.
En route to a historic treble, the top three places are currently occupied by members of this team: Kuss in the lead with the red jersey, closely followed by Roglic, and Tour de France champion Vingegaard. To follow the stages, several free streaming options are available.
Watching the Vuelta live and free of charge from outside Spain can be complicated, as no local broadcaster offers live coverage of the stages of this Spanish cycling tour. The only option is to subscribe to Eurosport, accessible via Canal+. The Vuelta is, however, broadcast free of charge on the Spanish channel RTVE, but only accessible to residents of Spain due to geographical restrictions.
A subscription to a VPN service, which simulates the user’s virtual location, makes it possible to bypass these limitations without having to physically travel to Spain.
