The Giro d’Italia is still wide open and there's plenty more action here how you can watch the 2020 edition.
While Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) and Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) have both abandoned the race due to to injury and illness respectively.
However the fight between Jumbo-Visma’s Steven Kruijswijk and Vincenzo Nibali (Trek-Segafredo) is heating up, with Jakob Fuglsang also thrown into the mix in a very open race.
So far we've seen some amazing moments in the race, including a stage win for Britain's Alex Dowsett (Israel Start-Up Nation), while Arnaud Démare has dominated with three sprint victories so far.
The GC race has yet to explode, with João Almeida (Deceuninck - Quick-Step) comfortably in the pink jersey, but with the rest of the favourites close behind the lead could change at any moment.
Check out the full start list for the 2020 Giro d’Italia.

How to live stream the Giro d’Italia 2020 when you’re not in your country
Heading abroad during the racing? Whether that be inside the UK or anywhere else, you may find access to your favourite home broadcaster is restricted by location. Luckily there is a way you can keep watching anyway – downloading and installing a VPN allows you to trick your computer into thinking it’s back at home. This allows you to watch your home broadcaster coverage without having to resort to an illegal steam, as long as you stick to the terms and conditions set out by the broadcaster.
Setting up a VPN is simple – just download, install, open the app and select your location.
Try out ExpressVPN for its speed, security and simplicity to use. We also like that it’s compatible with so many devices and streaming services (e.g. Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox, PS4, etc).
There are other great options out there of course, but Express VPN gives you the added benefit of a 30-day money back guarantee and three months free with a yearly plan.

Flo Bikes isn’t available outside of the US or Canada, so if you’re heading abroad from America during the racing you may find access to your favourite home broadcaster is restricted by location. Luckily there is a way you can keep watching anyway – downloading and installing a VPN.

Eurosport will have the racing live in Australia, starting at around 10pm each day, but of course you’ll need a subscription to watch.
