The 2021 Volta a Catalunya takes place March 22-28, 2021. This week-long stage race takes place in Spain's Catalonia region.
The rights to the 2021 Volta a Catalunya (for USA customers) are held by NBC Sports, who offers coverage of this event in a streaming package called Gold Cycling Pass. Gold Cycling Pass is an annual subscription package that is also the primary way to watch the Tour de France in the United States, as well as Paris-Roubaix.
If you're thinking of subscribing to watch Paris-Roubaix as well, note that there are some discussions about a possible cancellation of that event due to COVID-19.
Additionally, all Gold Cycling Pass subscriptions end on May 31, 2021, regardless of the sign-up date (note: that is before the 2021 Tour de France). Because of the enrollment terms and end date, subscribing now may be a poor value. The best value with NBC's Gold Cycling Pass is to sign up at the start of the Tour de France, in order to get the full year length from your subscription. That would presumably include some of the 2022 Spring Classics at the tail end of the subscription - but note that NBC has not yet announced that calendar or the price of Gold Cycling Pass for 2021/22 season.
