Discovery Channel's Manuel Beltran will be able to ride the Vuelta a España, despite being involved in a crash with a motorcyclist last Sunday. Team manager Johan Bruyneel commented on thepaceline.com, "Triki is OK, just some scratches and bruises - nothing major. He'll be OK for the upcoming Vuelta España."
The Spanish national tour will be held between August 27 and September 18. Beltran finished sixth in it in 2003.
