The Vuelta a Burgos 2020 kicks off on Tuesday, July 28 so make sure you don’t miss a moment of the action as we explain how to live stream the race where you are.

After a five-month lay-off due to coronavirus, top-tier bike racing is officially back and Burgos is the first major stage race on the calendar.

Taking place over five stages around the province of Burgos in the north of Spain, the race attracts numerous WorldTour teams and star riders.

This year’s edition will feature the likes of Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck – Quick-Step), Mark Cavendish (Bahrain-McLaren) and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar).

The 2020 edition is likely to be a key preparation race for Grand Tour contenders, as they quickly try to get back up to speed before the Tour de France kicks off on August 29.

How to live stream the Vuelta a Burgos 2020 in the UK

Unfortunately for cycling fans you won’t be able to watch the race on Eurosport and the race won’t be shown by any UK broadcasters.

But luckily the race organiser will be hosting coverage each stage on its website here, each day from 3pm CET. The commentary will be in Spanish however, so you won't be able to hear from your favourite Eurosport experts.

How to watch the Vuelta a Burgos in the US and Canada

If you’re in the USA or Canada, you will be able to view the race on Flo Bikes but you’ll need a subscription costing $30 a month or $150 for the year, which will give you access to most top-tier races.

Coverage will start at 8am CDT every day from July 28 until August 1 and finish at 10am.

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, which allows you to trick your computer into thinking it’s back at home. This allows you to find your native 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.
