The UCI WorldTour event is expected to boast a star-studded list of general classification leaders.
Matthew Keenan and Dave McKenzie lead commentary as Paris-Nice enters its 79th edition in 2021.
The eight-stage race is often called the ‘Race to the Sun’, because it typically opens in wintery conditions near Paris and concludes in the sunnier areas in or around Nice.
The course of the 2021 edition has something for each type of rider, but only a true all-rounder will be able to claim victory.
The opening stage will see riders complete a 166 kilometre route from Saint-Cyr-L’École to Saint-Cyr-L’École, with the second day of racing taking the peloton 188km from Oinville-sur-Montcient to Amilly.
Paris-Nice is organised by ASO, the same organisation behind the likes of the Tour de France and Paris-Roubaix.
