Ax 3 Domaines, France – France's Christophe Riblon captured Stage 14 of the 2010 Tour de France, but Luxembourg's Andy Schleck was able to stay with defending champion Alberto Contador of Spain as cycling's most prestigious event reached the Pyrenees.

Riblon finished the 184.5-kilometer trek from Revel to Ax 3 Domaines in a time of four hours, 52 minutes and 42 seconds to claim his first career stage win.

Schleck shadowed Contador up the final climb on Sunday and finished fourth in the stage, three places ahead of Contador. The two were part of a group 1:08 behind Riblon's time and the gap between the only true contenders for this year's Tour title remained 31 seconds.
