Nicole Cooke (Safi Pasta Zara Manhattan) won today's tough stage of the women's giro in a fine display of climbing up the mountain top finish to Magreglio. The stage win moves Cooke into the pink leaders jersey going into tomorrow's final stage with a safe 49 second lead on second place Fabian Luperini (Let's Go Finland).

Prior to this stage Cooke was sitting in fourth place on GC with her teammate Diana Ziliute in the lead. With the maglia rosa still in the team, the Safi Pasta team will be happy with their position with only one day to go.

The stage started with four laps of a fairly tough and technical circuit with a short hard climb in each lap. Positioning was critical going into each climb. After the circuits the race then headed to the major obstacle of the day, the mountain top finish.

An early break of seven riders set of in the hopes of getting to the climb with an advantage on the true climbers. They were caught by the bottom of the mountain and with the first three kilometers of the climb being extremely steep, attacks once again from Fabiana Luperini (Let's Go Finland) and Edita Pucinskaite (Michela Fanini-Record Box) managed to split of the peloton with only the top climbers able to hang in at the front.

Towards the top of the climb Cooke began to attack, finally with one kilometer to go, her attacks took a toll on the others and she got away gaining 14 seconds on second place getter, Pucinskaite by the finish. Nicole Braendli came in to take third place for the day.

With only one day remaining and a strong team behind her, Cooke's chances of taking the overall win in the tour look pretty safe.
