Spain's Juan Antonio Flecha of iBanesto.com escaped inside the last 30km to snatch the 11th stage of the Tour de France from Narbonne to Toulouse.

Flecha attacked the eight-man breakaway and hung on for the win in three hours 29 minutes 33 seconds after racing for 153.5km.

He held off Isidro Nozal of ONCE and Rabobank's Bram de Groot by four seconds, with the remainder of the breakaway following on behind.
