For the first time, British Eurosport will be showing the biggest moments from the forthcoming Spanish season, including action from the Setmana Catalana, Vuelta Al Pais Vasca, Vuelta a Aragon, Vuelta a Burgos and the Vuelta a Galicia.

This is great news for our ever increasing audience of non expert viewers, who have become more and more interested in cycle racing, says David Duffield, British Eurosports commentator, People can appreciate from their TVs, not just the sheer spectacle of bike racing but also the terrain where these races take place and admire the physical achievements of the riders.
