Watch the UCI World Tour 2019

Every year I watch most of the UCI World Tour race live as they are broadcasted on most of the organizing countries national TVs. The good side of being in Japan is that all European races live broadcast correspond to the evening in Japan.

The 2019 UCI World Tour includes one day “Classic” races and goes up to three weeks “Grand Tour” like the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and the Vuelta a showing cycling race

I like watching the races for the bicycles design, looking at the components used, the team and individuals riding strategies but also to discover the countries landscapes and their beautiful roads.
