After presenting the parcours of the 2008 Tour de France last month in Paris, race organiser ASO has announced that the start of Paris-Nice next year will not take place in the French capital as has been the custom. Instead, the 'race to the sun' scheduled from March 9-16 will depart from Amilly, south of Paris.

The opening time trial will be covering 9.3 kilometres, which is about the double length of the prologues raced in Paris-Nice in the last few years. The second stage of the race will also depart from Amilly. The full details of the 2008 Paris-Nice will be released in the beginning of next year.
