On Saturday there will be two chances to watch the Värmullsåsen stage – which includes the breathtaking ski slope descent to the finish line.
The stage will run in the morning from 1025hrs, and then again from 1513hrs as the decisive Power Stage.
Countries where the live stages will be shown include Sweden (SVT), the UK and Ireland (BT Sport), Spain (Canal +), Italy (Fox Sports), France (Canal +), the USA (MAV TV), Latin America (Fox), Australia (Fox), Japan (J Sports) and Sub Saharan Africa (Supersport)
