Ahead of this year's sixth stage in Benalmadena on Thursday, organisers said that the race will start with three or four stages in the Malaga region.

It is also expected that the final stage of the race will return to Madrid in 2015.

The capital doesn't feature at all in this year's route as the final stage is an individual time trial through the historic northwestern city of Santiago de Compostela.
