Race week three of the 2021 MotoGP season sees Fabio Quartararo looking to make it a trio of wins in a row as the riders head to Jerez. Don't miss a single lap with our guide to getting a Spanish MotoGP 2021 live stream.

While Frenchman Quartararo is currently the rider to beat, the narrative surrounding Sunday's action will likely be led by the riders taking to the grid on home turf.

A total of nine Spanish stars will be looking to impress this weekend, including 2020 champ Joan Mir who is still in search of his first finish inside the top two this season, despite a solid start to the campaign.

The big talking point in the lead-up to the race is undoubtedly the return of six-time champion Marc Marquez to Jerez, with the Spaniard lining up on the starting line of the course where things went so badly wrong for him last year.

The 28-year-old Repsol Honda rider broke his arm after a nasty crash on this circuit last July, but returned to action last weekend to finish seventh after nine months on the sidelines.

Can Marquez make a fairytale return to Jerez? Read on as we explain below how to get a MotoGP live stream for this week's Spanish MotoGP.

How to watch the Spanish Grand Prix online in the U.S.

NBC Sports has exclusive broadcast rights to the 2021 MotoGP season in the States, but the network is only showing five GPs live this year, with the rest being shown on tape delay.

Sunday's second race of the season falls into the latter category. While the race will start at 8am ET / 5am PT, the delayed broadcast of the race on NBCSN will start at 7.30pm ET / 4.30pm PT on Sunday evening/afternoon.

If you already have NBC Sports via cable already, you're all set and can watch via the network's website — you just need to tap in the details of your TV provider.

If you're looking to cut the cord, you can watch NBCSN via a FREE FuboTV trial today as it includes the channel and can be cancelled no questions asked if it's not right for you.

If you find yourself unable to access NBC's coverage because you're out of the country, remember that you can use a VPN to tune into your usual coverage just like you would at home. Of the many options, ExpressVPN as outlined above, remains one of the best services currently out there.
