VeloNews | Monday's Euro-file: Beloki gives Saiz a week

Joseba Beloki, injured July 14th during the Tour de France, will wait one more week before choosing his team for the 2004 season. Beloki is giving ONCE's directeur sportif one last chance at finding a title sponsor and holding on to Beloki.

Beloki, 30, told the Spanish daily AS that he wants to stay with Saiz if he can find a new sponsor to take over for the Spanish lottery ONCE, which is ending its long-running sponsorship at the end of this season.

"I'll wait one more week for Saiz. If nothing happens, I'll sign with a foreign team," Beloki said. The three-time Tour podium finisher has been linked to such teams as Rabobank, CSC, Gerolsteiner and Phonak, but until now has vowed to wait for Saiz.
