You're reading: Belgium’s Vanendert wins Tour de France 14th stage

PLATEAUDEBEILLE,France(AP) — Belgian rider Jelle Vanendert won Saturday's 14th stage of theTourdeFrance, and French cyclist Thomas Voeckler retained the race leader's yellow jersey.

Vanendert finished ahead of Samuel Sanchez of Spain, who beat Vanendert to win Thursday’s 12th stage.

Big attacks from theTourcontenders were expected in the most grueling stage of the Pyrenees so far, but Andy Schleck only gained two seconds on defending champion Alberto Contador and Cadel Evans despite several attempts.

The 168.5-kilometer (105-mile) trek from Saint-Gaudens to PlateaudeBeille finished with a 15.8-kilometer (10-mile) climb to PlateaudeBeille, a famed and tortuous ascent.
