Spain's Sanchez wins Tour de France's 14th stage

FOIX, France (AP) - Luis Leon Sanchez of Spain has won the 14th stage of the Tour de France as the three-week race entered the Pyrenees.

Tour leader Bradley Wiggins of Britain is expected to keep the yellow jersey. He and the other contenders Sunday were trailing a group of breakaway riders by more than 15 minutes.

Sanchez was among the cyclists who broke away in the day's final ascent. He then made his decisive move less than seven miles from the finish. It was the fourth time in his career he has won a Tour stage.
