BESANCON, France: Lance Armstrong joined a string of riders to question the racing tactics of American outfit Garmin on Saturday's 14th stage of the Tour de France.
 
The 199km stage ended with victory for Russian Sergei Ivanov, of Katusha, and Italian Rinaldo Nocentini, of AG2R, who kept the yellow jersey by a handful of seconds.
 
Armstrong slams Garmin racing tactics on 14th stage
 
Astana rider Lance Armstrong of the US reacts after crossing the finish line of the 15th stage of the 96th Tour de France cycling race between Pontarlier and Verbier, July 19, 2009.
 
But ahead of three key stages in the Alps, what was going on elsewhere was arguably more exciting.
 
Nocentini looked set to lose his yellow jersey to George Hincapie as the American raced ahead as part of a 12-man breakaway from which Ivanov emerged alone 11km from home to go on and win.
 
With AG2R struggling to close the gap at the front of the chasing bunch, the French outfit were forced to call on help. And Garmin, big rivals of Hincapie's Columbia team, seemed only too happy to oblige.
 
They appeared at the front of the chasing bunch with 10km to ride, allowing AG2R some respite before the French outfit went on to defend the jersey by a slim margin of five seconds.
 
Hincapie is now second in the overall standings, but with little chance of winning, the American veteran lost out on the prestige of becoming race leader, albeit briefly, for the first time since 2006.
 
Aided by Hincapie in winning all seven of his yellow jerseys, the former Tour de France champion was among those to hit out at Garmin's tactics.
