According to Saturday's edition of El Periodico de Aragon, the Vuelta a Aragon's organizer, Iberia Cycling Club, has received a negative answer from the regional government regarding sponsorship, and as consequence, the Spanish race will not take place in 2009.

Ibera Cycling Club president José Miguel Romeo has worked hard in recent months to recover the race that was last organized in 2005, but ultimately failed to secure the funding. "We've tried, but the bad economic situation we are experiencing in general has meant that the government of Aragon declined to invest the resources necessary for the Vuelta a Aragon to go forward on April 17."
