LYON, France — Italian cyclist Matteo Trentin won Saturday's hilly 14th stage of the Tour de France in a perfectly-timed sprint finish.
Overall leader Chris Froome and the other main contenders were several minutes back when Trentin crossed the finish line in Lyon. Froome was safely in the main pack.
Julien Simon was looking to become the first Frenchman to win a stage on this year's race but was caught by a handful of riders with about one kilometer to go.
As they contested the sprint, Trentin was near the back but surged forward to beat Swiss rider Michael Albasini by half a wheel length.
