Noemi Cantele (Bigla) took the fifth stage of the Giro Donne on the demanding uphill, cobbled finish in Cerro al Volturno. She powered away from five riders who were her companions in a breakaway which escaped the field on the day's big climb with 30km to go. The group included powerhouse sprinters Ina Teutenberg, the winner of stage four, and Giorgia Bronzini (Safi-Pasta) along with Cantele's teammate Jennifer Hohl, Julia Martisova 9Gauss RDZ Ormu) and Sigrid Corneo (Selle Italia).

Cantele said having her teammate in the break was an ideal situation. "I could not waste the situation," she said. "The climb was harder than you can imagine."

Cervelo's Emma Pooley finished near the front of the peloton, which was led home by Columbia-HTC's Judith Arndt, to maintain her lead in the overall standings.

Amerian Amber Neben crashed out of the race while sitting in fifth overall. She fell in a bend and was badly bruised and scraped up, but later examinations revealed no serious injuries. Neben led the race for a day after the time trial.

"Amber had the best prospects of a podium place. Our whole team has worked towards this goal, " said Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung director Jochen Dornbusch.  "Since we now have no more chances for the podium, we will try to at least win a stage. "
