    Excuse my ignorance, but where's Beloki?

    ("minimum characters")

    did he die in that crash last year?

    He's had a tough time recovering from last years crash. He's also had bad asthma and allergy problems.

    And finally he's without a team.
    i may have overreacted

    He's at home. He tried to come back too soon and too hard.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    That crash from last year was probably career ending.
    Someone on RBR called it well last year.
    He said he is still having nightmares, didn't he? That is rough.

    I recall reading somewhere that Beloki had a close encounter with a car during a training ride (he was trying to get ready for the TdF).

    Have Brioches la Boulangere sacked Beloki?

    When he found out that Brioches would not be renewing their sponsorship after this year, he asked to be let go.

    Thanks. I have missed that. Beloki will probably have a hard time finding a new team, especially if he insists on being the No.1 rider on the roster.
