Joseba Beloki, tragic victim of a crash on stage 9 which ended his most promising Tour de France bid yet, has been released from a Basque clinic five days after undergoing surgery for his fractured elbow, hip, and wrist. Beloki left the Esperanza de Vitoria clinic in the Basque region of Spain, but will continue to undergo physical therapy in the coming weeks. Team director Manolo Saiz commented during Monday's 15th stage that it will be at least a month to six weeks before Beloki climbs back on the bike.
