The Vuelta a España will apparently start in the Netherlands in 2009, reported Dutch newspaper de Telegraaf. The province of Drenthe has received a letter from the race organizers indicating that it is willing to make its first visit into the Netherlands. It is guessed that the Vuelta would open with a prologue in the city of Assen.
The 2007 Vuelta a España is scheduled to start on September 1 in Vigo.
