Russian champion Sergei Ivanov won the 14th stage between Colmar and Besançon, giving his team, the recently created Katusha, its first Tour de France victory. The Spaniard Rinaldo Nocentini remains the overall leader.

AFP - Russia's Sergei Ivanov, riding for the Katusha team, won Saturday's 14th stage of the Tour de France with Rinaldo Nocentini narrowly retaining the overall lead.
   
The Russian national champion was followed home by Ireland's Nicolas Roche, 16seconds behind.
   

New Zealand's Hayden Roulston and Martijn Maaskant of the Netherlands took the minor placings in this 199 kilometre run marked by tragedy with the death of a spectator following a collision with a police motorbike along the route.
   
Ivanov was adding this win to his first stage victory eight years ago.
   
Aside from Ivanov the day's big winner was George Hincapie, the American rider who set off from Colmar in the morning over five minutes behind but now lies 5s off Nocentini in second place in the overall standings.
