"She completed victory finishing safely in a bunch sprint on the final circuits in Milan, before being crowned the champion of the biggest stage race on the 2004 calendar," said Cooke's official website, nicolecooke.com.

"It's a remarkable success less than two months since knee surgery, and in only her second race of the year."

Cooke rides for Safi-Pasta Zara-Manhattan team.

The Giro Donne was part of her build up to the Olympics in August, and was "not a specific objective," said nicolecooke.com.
