CYCLING: Trentin claims 14th stage
July 14, 2013 2:10 AM

LYON, France (AP) — Italian cyclist Matteo Trentin timed his finish perfectly to win the hilly 14th stage of the Tour de France, while Chris Froome preserved his overall lead by staying in the pack on Saturday.

Froome and the other main contenders were more than seven minutes back when Trentin crossed the finish line in Lyon to become the first Italian to win a stage on this year’s Tour.

Froome remains 2:28 ahead of Dutchman Bauke Mollema, considered an outsider, and 2:45 clear of Alberto Contador, the 2007 and ’09 champion who was stripped of his 2010 title for doping.
