Tour de France 2013: stage 14 – photo gallery

Matteo Trentin (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) received a comprehensive round of congratulations after recording the biggest win of his young career. 

The second-year pro sprinted from the remnants of a breakaway to claim victory in Lyon after delaying his sprint to the final 100 metres before surging past numerous rivals to victory.

Team-mate, Mark Cavendish, a specialist in the field, who had collected the 25th Tour win of his brilliant career just a day earlier, seemed delighted with his team-mate’s victory.

Tomorrow’s stage will finish 1,912 metres above sea level, on the barren wasteland of the summit of Mont Ventoux . Neither Cavendish or Trentin is likely to contest victory there.

Another OPQS young gun, 23-year-old Michal Kwiatkowski, seventh on GC and holder of the white jersey for best young rider, would love to make it three in a row for the Belgian squad.
