Due to the absence of the Spanish television, who this year will reduce its broadcast of cycling to a minimum, the Vuelta Ciclista a AragÃ³n had to announce its suspension for 2007. Tuesday, the organiser (Club Ciclista Iberia) declared in an official communication that "despite the efforts of the government of AragÃ³n as main sponsor and force of our beloved Vuelta, it has been impossible for us to come up with the amount for the television broadcast. We had no sponsor for this. So we are obligated to announce the suspension."
According to the Spanish newspaper El Correo, the Vuelta Ciclista a AragÃ³n will lose its UCI rights and date in the calendar, April 18-22, because it has been suspended for the second year in a row.
