The penultimate stage of the women's Giro d'Italia was won by world champion Regina Schleicher (Nürnberger Versicherung). She won the stage starting and finishing Abbiategrasso (Milan) in a bunch sprint ahead of Giorgia Bronzini (Team FRW) and Rochelle Gilmore (Safi-Pasta Zara Manhattan). The pink jersey stayed with Nicole Brändli, but now Susanne Ljungskog is only one second behind the Swiss defending champion. Tomorrow, the final stage will finish on the climb of the Sanctuary of Madonna del Ghisallo, and will surely be an interesting one.

"I followed my teammate Oenone Wood until 200 metres to go, after this I made the final sprint," said Schleicher, who tomorrow will give her world champion’s jersey to the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Ghisallo.

Nicole Brändli commented, "Tomorrow the stage will be very exciting; the end of the Giro will be decided on the last climb where probably I’ll make the last attack."
