In one of the most interesting stages thus far in the 2013 Tour de France, it was Italian cyclist and Team Omega Pharma-Quick Step’s Matteo Trentin who was able to steal the Stage 14 victory in the final stretch by a wheel length.

This was Trentin’s first career stage win on the Tour de France.

Julien Simon led for much of Saturday’s race, but a last-second rush of sprinters in the final meters forced the French star all the way back to an 11th-place finish.

Despite finishing in 22nd on Saturday, Britain’s Christopher Froome was still able to retain the yellow jersey and the overall lead. Slovakian star Peter Sagan also retained the green jersey despite a horrible ride and a 105th-place finish.

Swiss star Michael Albasini was able to ride all the way to second place, and American Andrew Talansky finished in a very respectable third place. Spanish riders Jose Joaquin Rojas and Egoitz García finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

Stage 14 is one of the most visually interesting portions of the tour, traveling through the hills of Saint-Pourçain-sur-Sioule to Lyon in a 119-mile battle that featured some of the best racing of the event.

Despite the hard work shown in Stage 14, there is no down time, and Sunday brings the next portion of the race. Stage 15 is the third of seven mountain stretches of the tour and will take the cyclists from Givors to Mont Ventoux on a 151-mile endurance test.

The cyclists will have Monday off as a rest day.
