Banshee Team Leader?

Looks like Joseba Beloki is looking for a job. Maybe we can get him to be Banshee team leader. Here's the latest from VeloNews.

Beloki on the job market
Spain's three-time Tour de France podium finisher Joseba Beloki has split with the Saunier Duval cycling team and is on the look out for a new stable, his agent Pablo Arregui told AFP Monday.

The 31-year-old former ONCE team leader joined Saunier Duval last July from French outfit La Boulangere.

Beloki fell out with La Boulangere after the team's doctors refused to prescribe a cortisone treatment for him, despite the rider claiming he suffered from asthma.

Happier Times: Beloki at the 2002 Vuelta

He has failed to get back to his former form after suffering a fractured leg during the 2003 Tour de France.

Beloki was in second place overall before he fell heavily after skidding on melted tar four kilometers from the finish line of the ninth stage at Bourg-d'Oisans.
