The 2022 European stage racing season is well underway as we enter March and with it the 80th edition of Paris-Nice (March 6-13).

The 'Race to the Sun' is, as ever, in competition with Tirreno-Adriatico for attention and eyeballs this week, though the French stage race can boast a top start list to rival its Italian cousin as stage racing royalty and the best of the sprinting world take the start in Mantes-la-Ville on Saturday.

The Jumbo-Visma pairing of Primož Roglič and Wout van Aert are the most eye-catching names starting the race, though there are plenty more stars besides that duo lining up in France.

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

Roglič, determined to win in Nice after crashing out of the lead on the final day last year, will face off against a powerful set of opponentes during the eight days of competition.

Adam Yates (Ineos Grenadiers), Nairo Quintana (Arkéa-Samsic), Simon Yates (BikeExchange-Jayco), João Almeida (UAE Team Emirates), Ben O'Connor (AG2R Citroën), Guillaume Martin (Cofidis), David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ), and the Bora-Hansgrohe pairing of defending champion Max Schachmann and Aleksandr Vlasov provide stiff competition for the Slovenian.

The sprinting stakes will be high, too, as the in-form Fabio Jakobsen (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl) and Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Fenix) meet for the first time in 2022. Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe), Dylan Groenewegen (BikeExchange-Jayco), and Juan Sebastián Molano (UAE Team Emirates) also race.

Elsewhere, Classics contenders Mads Pedersen, Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segafredo), Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious), Matteo Trentin (UAE Team Emairates), Zdenek Stybar, Yves Lampaert (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl), and Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ) are fine-tuning their form ahead of their goals later this spring.

Check out our race preview for a comprehensive rundown of the big names taking part and the route of the 2022 Paris-Nice.
