Giro d’Italia 2018: How to watch the cycling live online stream

Chris Froome will lead the Team Sky effort, returning to the race for the first time in eight years.

The decorated Brit will attempt to complete the Giro-Tour de France double and having won the La Vuelta last year, become only the third rider in history to hold all three Grand Tour titles at the same time.

Froome will start as favourite but is expected to face stiff competition from last year’s winner Tom Dumoulin as well as the likes of Miguel Angel Lopez, Thibaut Pinot and Fabian Aru.

So here’s how to make sure you don’t miss a second of the action.

The UK TV rights for the Giro d’Italia have once again been taken up by Eurosport, who will split the coverage across their two channels, on Eurosport 1 (Sky channel 410) and Eurosport 2 (Sky 411).

Viewers without a Eurosport subscription can still get their fix of Giro action with exclusive highlights of the action to be shown live on Quest every day, starting at 7pm on Friday May 4.

Sky Sports subscribers with Eurosport access on their TV used to be able to access the Discovery-owned channels via Sky Go.

However, that deal has expired and now viewers who want to watch the Australian Open online will have to buy a Eurosport Player pass.

Day passes cost £4.99 while an annual pass costs £29.99 and gives you access to both channels on a range of devices all year round.
