Beloki back with Saiz at Liberty Seguros
Spain's Joseba Beloki is going home, to the Liberty Seguros team managed by Manolo Saiz.
Beloki finished on the podium at the Tour de France in 2000 and 2002, second in 2002, while riding for Saiz at ONCE. In 2003, Beloki broke several bones in a crash during Stage 9 of the Tour, and hasn't returned to form since.
"My aim is to be the rider that I once was during the Tour," he told Spanish sports daily Marca.
"After many days of uncertainty and anxiety about my future, at last I'll be able to sleep well."
One effect of the new ProTour is that it's less of an issue that Liberty Seguros already has a leader in Roberto Heras, because the team will have to contest more races to be competitive in the new series.

Me encataria ir a correr a su pais,para poder volverme un ciclista profesional,para poder ayudar a mi familia.
Lo saludo, y espero con ansiedad su repusta.
