The UCI’s top event is on this week in Varese, Italy and is covered all over the shop. Men’s U23 Individual Time Trial is on Tuesday, Women’s ITT on Wednesday, Men’s ITT on Thursday, Men’s U23 Race on Friday, Women’s Race on Saturday and Men’s Race on Sunday.

English-language coverage is on BBCi and BBC-2, free-to-air at 28e and also online, but don’t include the U23 races. Shows are Wednesday 1300-1600, Thursday 1200-1630, Saturday 1200-1545 and Sunday 0930-1630 all BST. BBC Two highlights ahows are on Saturday and Sunday 1800-1900 BST.

German-language coverage on Eurosport (free-to-air at 19e, also in English on analogue) is probably the most comprehensive. Shows are on Wednesday 0045, 0830, 1230, 1400 (live), 1815, Thursday 0030, 1145, 1300 (live), Friday 0030, 1300 (live), 2345, Saturday 1300 (live), Sunday 1030 (live) all CET.

French-language coverage is on France 3, free-to-air at 5W, with shows at Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday at 1500 CET.

Italian-language coverage is on RAI Tre and RAI Sport piu, usually FTA at 13e, at similar times to France 3.

Also on 13e, SLO2 has coverage on Thursday, Friday and Sunday at 1500 CET.
