The Giro d’Italia is one of cycling's Grand Tour races, along with the Tour de France and Vuelta a España. The prestigious multiple-stage bicycle race is mainly held in Italy, but often passes through nearby countries as well. The routes change every year, although the format remains the same. It has 21 stages traditionally held over a 23- or 24-day period. Participants get two rest days to recover during the event.

When is the Giro d'Italia?

After last year's event was shifted from May to October due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is back to its traditional timeslot in 2021. It will run from 8-30 May with 21 stages planned. Opening in Turin, Italy, it will conclude in Milan. This time around the Giro will be held entirely in Italy for the second year running.

How to watch the Giro d'Italia

Foxtel opted not to renew its contract with Eurosport in December 2019. That allowed fellow subscription TV option Fetch TV to secure the rights to the channel, which broadcasts a range of cycling, including the Giro d'Italia. In December 2020, however, Eurosport exited the Australian market altogether.

That means in 2021 the Giro d'Italia again has a new broadcast home, SBS. All 21 stages will be available on SBS VICELAND or streaming on SBS On Demand.

While Foxtel no longer broadcasts the Giro, you can access a number of other global cycling events through Fox Sports or streaming service Kayo Sports. Cycling is just one of more than 50 sports available on Kayo Sports. If you are yet to try Kayo, it offers a 14-day free trial so you can test out the service.

Subscriptions for Kayo Sports are $25/month for the Basic option, where you can watch events on 2 screens or devices. The Premium option is $10 more per month and gives you 3 screens. We have put together a full review of the service for you.
