DAILY RECAP | Saturday's 14th stage



Published: Sat, July 16, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.


Stage: Saturday's 14th stage took riders into the Pyrenees for the first time on a brutal 137-mile trek from Agde to Ax-3 Domaines.
Winner: Georg Totschnig, Austria, Gerolsteiner, in 5 hours, 43 minutes, 43 seconds.
How others fared: Lance Armstrong, United States, Discovery Channel, was second, 56 seconds behind; Ivan Basso, Italy, Team CSC, was third, 58 seconds behind; Jan Ullrich, Germany, T-Mobile, was fourth, 1:16 behind.
Yellow jersey: Six-time champion Armstrong keeps the yellow jersey -- and extends his lead over Mickael Rasmussen of Denmark to 1:41 and over Ivan Basso to 2:46. Ullrich is 4:34 behind.
Quote of the day: "We don't have a choice. The Gods deal us the weather and you have to be smart about it. I tried to put as much water on my head and legs as possible, stay cool and ride a conservative race."-- Armstrong suffers in the heat.
Next stage: Today's 15th stage is considered the hardest of the race so far, a punishing 127.7 mile route from Lezat-sur-Leze to Saint-Lary Soulan. It will mark the 10th anniversary of the death of Fabio Casartelli, Armstrong's former Motorola teammate.
