The 80th edition of the Paris-Nice, The Race to the Sun, is upon us, with Primož Roglič’s looking to make amends after agonisingly missing out on win in the closing stages of last year's event. The Slovenian is looking very much on for victory heading into stage 6 with a 39 second lead over Briton Simon Yates. Can the Dream Crusher go one step closer this time around? Read on as we explain how to get a 2022 Paris-Nice live stream today and watch the UCI World Tour cycling online wherever you are right now.
Slovenian star Roglič dominated throughout last year's race but suffered a heavy crash on the final stage to deny him overall victory last year, and he will be determined to right that wrong this time out.
Max Schachmann has won the last two editions of Paris-Nice and comes in as this year's favourite alongside alongside UAE Team Emirates star Brandon McNulty.
The eight-stage route runs a total of 1,173.8 km, starting in the Parisian suburb of Mantes-la-Ville and snaking down through the heart of France towards Nice and the beautiful Côte d’Azur, which is where the views become almost as breathtaking as the hill climbs.
