Vuelta a Valenciana loses sponsor

The Vuelta a la Comunidad Valenciana lost its main sponsor, according to newspaper Levante. Regional bank Bancaja supported the five-day early-season Spanish stage race for the last 29 editions.

Race organiser, Depergo, is searching for similar economic support for its 2009 edition, scheduled for February 24 to 28. The local government of Valencia could assume responsibility of the event.

The 2008 edition was won by Spaniard Rubén Plaza. (AS)
