Beloki says he's in for the Tour

www.cyclingnews.com | Beloki & the Tour: will he or won't he?

Despite earlier suggestions that friction with team management and problems getting in top shape might keep Joseba Beloki off the Tour start line, Beloki says you can count on him:

"In spite of my problems with allergies, the Tour is not in danger," said Beloki, adding that he would approach the Tour "with ambition."

"I have allergies and under French law I have problems with my treatment. If I cannot take my usual thing I will have problems in competition," he said. Beloki has a permit to use a medication containing cortisone, but this is not permitted under French regulations.

Next up for Beloki are the Route du Sud (June 19-22), the Spanish championships, and then the Tour de France.
