Where to catch all the action of the 73rd edition of the Race to the Sun, Paris-Nice

TAGS:

Over a week of top cycling action begins this weekend (March 7/8) with Italian one-day Classic Strade Bianche and the start of the prestigious stage race, Paris-Nice.

As usual, the Race to the Sun features a strong lineup of riders, including former winners Tony Martin (Etixx-Quick Step), Richie Porte (Team Sky) and Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky).

Now in its 73rd edition, the 2015 race will see the return of the famous mountain time trial on the final stage to the summit of the Col d’Èze, where both Wiggins and Porte sealed overall victory in the race in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

Last year’s champion Carlos Betancur (Ag2r-La Mondiale) will not be back to defend his title as he will rie the more mountainous parcours of Tirreno-Adriatico, which begins part way through Paris-Nice on Wednesday (March 10).

The eight day stage race runs from Sunday, March 8 to Sunday March 15 and you can catch every stage on British Eurosport.
