Subject: Beloki...the new Ocăna?

I don't know about you guys, but to me Beloki is blending evermore into the image of the great but dramatic figure of Luis Ocăna. Both about the only real challengers for their respective great opponents, both forced to abandon the Tdf on a moment things are looking up for them... granted, Ocăna a lot more than Beloki, but still.

It's just that everytime i see Beloki, i see Ocăna, and after his dramatic crash today that will all but end. On the bright side for Joseba...Ocăna did win it once...i hope it'll hapen for him too someday. His modesty and style have made me very fond of Beloki. I have yet to spot any arrogance in him, or disrespect for his opponents. And he's a man of his words. I swear, Lance must have been slightly panicking when he first attacked on L'alpe, if he could have done so, he'd countered it for sure. (cos he would later say that "staying with Beloki was the only thing i was trying to achieve")

Sorry for this slight rambling...i'm just a bit sad at the loss of Beloki's silent dignity in this year's Tdf. Fare thee well Luis...erh, Joseba! ;)
