Vincenzo Nibali (Liquigas-Doimo) soloed to victory in the 171km queen stage at the Tour of Slovenia and took over the race lead with one stage remaining. The 25-year-old Italian arrived at the mountain finish in Krvavec, 1,490m in elevation, with a 43-second advantage over compatriot Giovanni Visconti (ISD - Neri) and 45 seconds ahead of Chris Anker Sörensen (Team Saxo Bank).

"The stage today was what most intrigued me," said Nibali. "The uphill finish lent itself to a solo attack, I liked it. I increased the tempo 13km from the finish, trying to maintain a steady pace. It was not easy but thanks to good physical condition acquired during the Tour of Italy I managed to create a gap.

"My goal is to fine-tune the legs ahead of the Italian Championship, a very hard and selective test."

Tomorrow the peloton faces the Tour of Slovenia's final stage, 157km from Brezice to Novo Mesto.
