Yesterday, the Tour de Romandie had it ProTour license renewed for three years. "At the end of the procedure stipulated by the rules, the Licences' Commission has decided to grant a UCI ProTour licence for 3 years (2007-2009)," read a press release from the UCI ProTour.

The short stage race is held in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. In 2006 the Tour de Romandie celebrated its 60th edition with a win by Australian Cadel Evans (Davitamon-Lotto), who took out the overall classification in a thrilling final time trial around Lausanne. The renewal will allow the race, typically held in late April, a guaranteed spot in cycling's top level calendar, the ProTour, through 2009.
