Bauke Mollema wins Stage 14 of Tour de France; Tadej Pogacar retains yellow


Dutch rider Bauke Mollema won the second Tour de France stage of his career on Saturday, holding on to win Stage 14 after a late breakaway.

Mollema, 34, made his move on the final climb of the day as the race traveled from Carcassone to Quillan. He won a similar stage in the 2017 race.

French rider Guillaume Martin (Cofidis), who started the stage in ninth place in the general classification, joined the breakaway and vaulted all the way up to second.

Martin now trails Tadej Pogacar of Slovenia by four minutes, four seconds for the overall leader’s yellow jersey.

Sunday’s Stage 15 course runs 118 miles through the mountains from Ceret to Andorre-la-Vieille.
