Dutch energy company Eneco has decided not to renew its title sponsorship of the Eneco Tour, after seven years of sponsoring the event. The organising committee hopes to find a new title sponsor this autumn and has already recruited former Dutch professional Bart Voskamp as race director. The 2009 event will be renamed as the Benelux Tour.
Next year's race will run from August 19-26 and is expected to have at least one stage finish in Luxembourg. This year's event, the final one to run under the Eneco Tour name, will take place from August 20-27.
