Colombian Luis Felipe Laverde Jimenez (Ceramica Panaria-Navigare) has won the 14th stage of the Giro d'Italia, a transitional mountain stage between Aosta and Domodossola. Laverde attacked with Francisco Pérez (Caisse d'Epargne) with 5 km to go, and successfully held off the rest of the 11 man breakaway. Paolo Tiralongo (Lampre-Fondital) took third ahead of Stefan Schumacher (Gerolsteiner). Apart from Sandy Casar, who moved into sixth overall, there was no-one threatening on GC in the break, and Ivan Basso kept his leader's maglia rosa for another day.
