The 2022 spring Classics are underway, and if you're looking for a way to watch the action in the coming month we've put together a handy spring Classics live stream guide.

The series of one-day races in Belgium, France, and Italy packing the calendar through March and April will bring four Monuments throughout the spring: Milan-San Remo, the Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, and Liège-Bastogne-Liège, but there's plenty of other upcoming racing to look forward to as well.

La Classicissima isn't a warm-up for future races, though, far from it. Top sprinters and puncheurs have targeted the race as an early-season goal, while a certain Grand Tour champion is also among the favourites. This is our comprehensive guide on how to watch the action.

Cyclingnews will bring you full reports, results, news, interviews, and analysis throughout the race. Read on to find out how to watch the spring Classics via live stream, no matter your location, with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).

Milan-San Remo is up this weekend, the longest race of the season at 293 kilometres and, give or take, seven hours of racing. It's a slow burner, with the early flatlands across Lombardia, the Passo del Turchino, and the run along the Ligurian coast giving way to increasing tension and more hills later on.

The capi climbs of the Mele, Cervo, and Berta give way to the Cipressa and then, finally, the Poggio, where race-winning attacks can be launched as the hill-climbers seek to upset the sprinters ahead of the Via Roma finish.

A host of past winners will be on the start line this year, including John Degenkolb (Team DSM), Michał Kwiatkowski (Ineos Grenadiers), Alexander Kristoff (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux), and Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ).

2020 winner Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) – the latter aided by Primož Roglič – will command the most attention of those on the honour roll, though. Reigning champion Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo) somehow takes on an underdog role to those fellow stars.

The presence of Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) is the headline, though, with the Slovenian's addition to the start list a potential race changer. He'll have Matteo Trentin alongside him should the race come down to a sprint.

Home hopes rest with Ineos Grenadiers' duo Filippo Ganna and Elia Viviani, though neither are quite top favourites.

Sprinter-wise, the in-form Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal), a runner-up last year, looks the best bet. Michael Matthews (BikeExchange-Jayco), Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious), Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe), Peter Sagan (Team TotalEnergies), Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux) and Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Fenix) are among the other fastmen hoping to sprint to the win in San Remo. 

The in-form Fabio Jakobsen gets a late call-up for QuickStep-AlphaVinyl after 2019 champion Julian Alaphilippe sits out due to bronchitis.

The 2022 Milan-San Remo starts at 9:50 local time (10:50 GMT, 06:50 EST) and is set to finish at around 15:48 local time (14:48 GMT, 10:48 EST).
