The organiser of the Clásica de Alcobendas will not run the Spanish stage race this May for "technical reasons." It has planned a criterium in the race's place this October.

The organiser had planned to hold the three-stage race May 8 to 10.

A criterium will be held this fall as a substitution. So the citizens of the Alcobendas "may enjoy the best cyclists in the international peloton," said the organiser. It wishes to hold the stage race again in 2010.
