Beloki and Heras feeling better

Liberty's two pre-Tour leaders, Roberto Heras and Joseba Beloki got it hard in the Alps but reported yesterday that they have started to feel good sensations again. The two are therefore more optimistic heading into the Pyrenees. Yesterday was the second anniversary of Beloki's big accident in the Tour, and while he is still some way off the form that earned him three podium placings on the Tour, he is hopeful that he could chase a stage win later in the race. The team's GC hopes now rest with Jörg Jaksche, who lies 13th overall after the Alps and can realistically target a place inside the top ten.
