- Sunday's Giro d'Italia Stage 2 departs Jesolo at 13:35 CET (7:35am U.S. Eastern) and is expected in Trieste at around 17:12 CET (11:12am U.S. Eastern). Giro d'Italia live video streaming on Universal Sports is scheduled to begin at 8:20am U.S. Eastern. Giro d'Italia live coverage on Rai Tre is scheduled to begin at 15:05 CET (9:05am U.S. Eastern). Giro live video on Rai Sport Piu is also scheduled to begin at that time but may begin earlier. We hope to have more Giro live feeds starting with Stage 2.

- Giro d'Italia live coverage on Universal Sports is scheduled to begin at 8:30am U.S. Eastern. Because this is about an hour before the first team, Team Columbia-Highroad, is scheduled to depart in the TTT, we are not sure if Universal Sports has the start time wrong or if they plan some pre-race coverage. Giro d'Italia live video streaming on Rai Sport Piu is scheduled to begin at 16:20 CET (10:20am U.S. Eastern), followed 5 minutes later by live coverage on Rai Tre. Actual times may vary. We will list other Giro d'Italia live video feeds as they become available, and update our live coverage guides during the stage each day of the race.
- Giro d'Italia Stage 1 Team Time Trial Start Order and Times:
1. Team Columbia - Highroad: 15:35 CET (9:35am U.S. Eastern)
- Giro d'Italia live coverage on Eurosport is scheduled to start at 15:45 CET (9:45am U.S. Eastern). We expect to have, at minimum, live audio streams at around that time. Scheduled start times for live video streams from other sources are noted in the Live video streaming section at right.
