TV

The Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang prevent Eurosport 2 from showing all stages live, which means that hardcore viewers will have to switch to Eurosport Player. Race images should also be available on Abu Dhabi Sports. There are the timetables for all five days (CET):

Wednesday 21: 12.00 – 14.00 > Player
Thursday 22: 10.45 – 13.15 > Player
Friday 23: 12.00 – 14.30 > Player
Saturday 24: 11.45 – 13.00 > Eurosport 2
Sunday 25: 12.45 – 14.00 > Eurosport 2

The Movistar Team has finished in seventh (Valverde, 2015), ninth (Anacona, 2016) and thirteenth (Nairo Quintana, 2017) places in the individual GC of a race where they claimed team overall honours in its inaugural edition, three years ago. The Eusebio Unzué-managed squad is yet to win a stage in the Emirati race.
