Women's World Cup -  5th Gran Premio Castilla y Leon
Nicole Cooke wins in Spain, Judith Arndt second, Suzanne Ljungskog fill out the podium in the Women's World Cup.

The young leader of the Women's World Cup of Univega won the Gran Premio Castilla Y Leon with a well timed attack on the steep climb to the finish denying Judith Arndt the victory, with Susanne Ljungskog rolling in for third place.

The lead group of 10 arrived at the head of affairs after the 126 kms of racing animated by a solo break Aussie Kathy Watt that never gained more than half a minute on the chasing peloton. Noemi Cantele was the next to make an attempt to a gap but she was brought back in time for the final five finishing circuits.

Attacks became the order of the day with Judith Arndt and the T-Mobile team seeking to separate Cooke from her Univega team mates. Entering the final lap of 8kms to go Priska Dopmann attacked the lead group, a good effort but Priska was brought back with 2kms to go and Cooke with team mate Joanne Kiesanowsky of New Zealand was able to set up Nicole for her final successful attack.

Oenone Wood (NUR) led the remnants of the spread out peloton to win the sprint for 11th place thirty one seconds later.

With this victory Nicole Cooke solidifies her lead in the Women's World Cup a good omen for the year half way through the cup series and a return to form and success for the former World Cup's youngest winner in 2003.
