Heading due south for eight days from the outskirts of the capital to the azure waters of the Mediterranean via the lower slopes of the Alps the race is the first classic stage race on the 2024 calendar.

Paris-Nice, the race to the Sun, the first big test of form in the long run up to the Tour de France in July will see a strong field of riders tackle the eight stages from Paris to the warm waters of the Mediterranean.

Covering a total of 1,221km, the race kicks off with a couple of lumpy stages close to the capital, which should go the way of the sprinters, but then the GC battle starts on Stage three. Set in the town of Auxerre the 26.5km team time trial will likely set the tone for the rest of the race and will see the teams of the two red hot favourites Remco Evenepoel (Soudal - Quick Step) and Primož Roglič (BORA - hansgrohe) try to take the leader's jersey. 

Following the time trial, the race gets increasingly mountainous the further south it travels with serious elevation gained each day and a punishing summit finish on stage seven into Auron. The race may well be decided after this but there is one more stage, another extremely hilly affair which could still shake things up on the final run to the line in Nice. 

Set to challenge the two principle protagonists of Evenepoel and Roglič are João Almeida and Brandon McNulty (UAE Team Emirates), Pello Bilbao (Bahrain - Victorious), Carlos Rodríguez (INEOS Grenadiers) and David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ).

On a grim wet day in southern France the peloton faced a shortened stage due to the planned final climb being a foot deep in snow. Instead the race headed to the 15km ascent of the La Madone d’Utelle and hitting the base all the favourites were together just a handful of seconds behind long time escapee  Johan Jacobs (Movistar).

The first team to take up the pace on the climb were Remco Evenepoel’s Soudal Quick-Step and they proceeded to shred the group leaving only a select few but such was the pace that no single attack stuck until Aleksandr Vlasov (Bora-Hasngrohe) sprung clear and eventually took the stage. Behind there were gaps everywhere but overnight leader Brandon McNulty just did enough to hold onto the yellow jersey to take into the final stage. 

Tune in tomorrow to see if he can win the overall with coverage starting at 12.05 p.m (GMT), read on to learn how you can catch the action wherever you live.

Paris-Nice 2024 live streams around the world

It's only natural that you might want to watch a 2024 Paris-Nice live stream from your home country, but what if you're not there when the race is on?

Look no further than a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is NordVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.


There's a good reason you've heard of NordVPN. We specialize in testing and reviewing VPN services and NordVPN is the one we rate best. It's outstanding at unblocking streaming services, it's fast and it has top-level security features too.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, NordVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view an Italian service, you'd select Italy from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Rai or another streaming service and watch the action.
