Eurosport has extended Giro d’Italia coverage and additional races have been confirmed from 2017, meaning cycling fans can enjoy over 200 days of live cycling on Eurosport in 2017.
The news follows a new long-term agreement covering all major Italian races, Flanders Classics and a number of Tour events around the world. The races form part of an unrivalled calendar of cycling on Eurosport, including all three of the Grand Tours and all five Monuments. Fans can look forward to the first Grand Tour of the season and all major Italian races, including Il Lombardia and Milan-San Remo, the first classic of the season, on Eurosport. For the Giro d’Italia, the new agreement includes more coverage than ever before and four hours of every stage live.
