La Grande Boucle Féminine Internationale

Stage 7 Aix les Bains - Courchevel, 163.4 km

Edita Pucinskaite continued her great season comeback by winning the Seventh Stage of the feminine Tour of France between Aix-them-Bains and Courchevel. Winner of the race in 1998 and Champion of the world in 1999 , Pucinskaite gained 9 seconds advantage on the days other two “winners” : Zinaida Stahurskaia and the race favourite Joane Somarriba.

This morning's Gold jersey holder, Judith Arndt, put up a brave battle on the Alpine stage but ended up losing over 6 minutes on the day and her overall lead to Zinaida Stahurskaia (USC Chirio).

The race now seems to be between Zinaida Stahurskaia, who has 59 seconds advantage over Joane Somarriba Arrola (Deia Pragma Colnago) and 1.17 over Edita Pucinskaite (Figurella Dream Team). However, Stage 8 is once again in the mountains so there is still every thing to ride for.
