The Vuelta a España is staying in Spain in 2008, but that will not be the case in 2009. Two years from now, the Spanish Grand Tour will start in the Netherlands, the race organisers confirmed this week at the announcement of the 2008 parcours.

The Vuelta will open with a prologue on the TT Circuit Assen, a race track which has hosted motorcycle races since 1925. The first stage will then take the peloton through the province of Drenthe in Northeastern Netherlands.
