Manual Belletti (Colnago CSF Inox) won the third and final stage of the Giro della Provincia di Reggio Calabria in southern Italy, beating Danilo Napolitano (Acqua & Sapone) and teammate Sasha Modolo (Colnago CSF) in a sprint finish.

Daniele Pietropolli (Lampre-ISD) finished in the same time and so secured overall victory for a second time in this early season three-day race in Southern Italy.

The hotly contested stage was marked by a 120km breakaway by Christian Benenati (De Rosa) and Norberto Wilches (Meridiana). The two were eventually caught and Sergio Laganà (De Rosa-Flaminia) had a go but he too was pulled back by the peloton ready for the sprint finish.
