Vuelta a Aragón is a professional cycle road race held in Spain in April each year. The event was first run in 1939 but has not been held consistently, being cancelled in 2006 and 2007. The future of the race is uncertain; there have been plans to organise it again, however, as of 2009 the race does not have sufficient sponsorship to be held.[1]
