The Vuelta a España is the third and final Grand Tour event on the cycling calendar in 2022 and looks set to be fiercely contested between a number of contenders.

Reigning champion Primoz Roglic has won three consecutive Vuelta titles and is aiming to become the joint most successful rider in the history of the competition.

Roberto Heras was the last rider to win three in a row between 2003-2005 and is also the only rider with four titles to his name having previously won in 2000.

However, Roglic is coming off an injury and isn't a guaranteed starter. There's a stacked array of talents who will be aiming to dislodge him from the top spot if he does feature.

Tour de France champion Jai Hindley is in the mix this time around, while Tadej Pogacar – Tour champion in 2020 and 2021, runner-up in 2022 – is out due to competing in the WorldTour peloton.

Fans around the world will be keen to keep track of all the unfolding events and dramatic moments live on TV and online, and UK fans have more than a few options to choose from.
