How to watch Paris-Nice 2024: live stream the UCI World Tour cycling stage race online for free

Primoz Roglic makes his keenly anticipated Bora-Hansgrohe debut at Paris-Nice 2024, the first major one-week race of the year, and he's expected to face stiff competition for the yellow jersey from Soudal–Quick-Step’s Remco Evenepoel, who's taking on the eight-stage event for the first time.

The Paris-Nice live stream is free to watch on SBS on Demand in Australia, Rai Play in Italy, and RTBF in Belgium. Don't worry if you're abroad right now, because you can watch Paris-Nice 2024 live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

This is a pivotal event for Roglic for a multitude of reasons. The 2022 Paris-Nice winner's split from mighty Visma-Lease a Bike was a risky move, because Bora-Hansgrohe is clearly the inferior outfit. However, the switch gives him his best shot at landing a leading role at the Tour de France.

The Paris-Nice is always seen as a miniature dress rehearsal for the Tour, but this year the similarities are starker than ever, because the Tour will finish in Nice this summer, in order to avoid a clash with the Paris Olympics.

Starting off in freezing conditions in northern France, the Paris-Nice winds its way down to the French Riviera over the course of eight days. Highlights include a Stage 3 TTT, where times will be set by the first rider across the line, the Stage 7 Queen stage, featuring a Cat 1 summit finish at Auron and, of course, the grueling climb up Col d’Eze on Stage 8.

That means you can access your usual sports and entertainment services even while you're traveling abroad.

Our favorite VPN is ExpressVPN, which is the No. 1-rated VPN in the world right now according to our sister site, TechRadar.
