German Trixi Worrack rescued the Giro Donne for Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung by taking a fine solo victory on the eight stage to Pesco Sannita. After the team's leader Amber Neben crashed out of the race earlier this week, the team switched its focus to winning stages, and Worrack came through with aplomb.

Worrack attacked with 25km to go on the day's final climb, and by the line had opened up a 1'13 lead on a chasing group led home by American Shelley Olds.

Overall leader Claudia Hausler rolled across the line 2'57 behind Worrack, her lead not threatened by the five riders in front. The Cervelo rider's closest competition, Judith Arndt (Columbia-HTC), crashed out of the race on the stage, leaving her teammate Mara Abbott to take up the second place position on GC, 50" behind Hausler.

The race concludes Sunday.
