British Eurosport provide live coverage of the Vuelta a España, while ITV4 will broadcast highlights every evening

The third Grand Tour of the season promised to be a cracker, with a start list almost as strong as that of the Tour de France. Nairo Quintana, Chris Froome, Alejandro Valverde and Vincenzo Nibali were all set to lock horns once more, while Peter Sagan and John Degenkolb resumed their battle from the Tour.

However, things didn’t quite pan out that way. Nibali was ejected from the race on stage two for taking illegal assistance from his team car. Then on stage eight, Sagan was knocked off by a race motorbike and forced to retire from the race as a result of his injuries — and Froome  joined the list of retirees after the gruelling stage 11.

As usual, British Eurosport have live coverage of every stage as well as highlights smattered throughout the three weeks, while ITV4 also provide highlights of each stage in the early evening.

These timings are open to change.

    He seems rather miserable, perhaps because he wasn’t selected last year. Gary Imlach also never seems very cheerful. Perhaps it is just the result of being stuck inside a studio…

    ITV4 really need to get rid of David Millar. His incessant droning and inability to produce any collective noun other than “bunch” is leading me to turn the sound down. Dreadful.
