2011 Tour de France Standings, Results And News After Stage 14

The Tour de France's trip through the Pyrenees ended with a fizzle rather than a bang on Saturday as the general classification remained unchanged and the biggest contenders for the 2011 title failed to mount serious attacks. Instead, Jelle Vanendert, riding in his first Tour de France, surged to the stage win, putting 21 seconds between himself and the second-place finisher, Samuel Sanchez. Andy Schleck finished in third, 48 seconds behind Vanendert.

It was slow-going for the top-contenders, who struggled to breakaway from the pack, and away from each other, in the mountainous stage. While Contado, Evans and Andy Schleck did engage in a back-and-forth battle over the final climb. Schleck picked up two seconds on the other two, more of a moral victory than anything else, and the general classification stayed relatively the same, far from the major change expected before the stage.

Here's a look at the top-seven after Saturday's stage.
