Labous was once again in the mix at the front of the race in the mountains of the Giro Donne on stage 8, making the select front group of favourites behind the breakaway before finishing seventh.
The day featured two mountain ascents, the first of which saw the race split behind the early breakaway, forming a select group of nearly 20 riders, including Labous. In the valley road between the two mountains, this group split, forcing the pace further and seeing the gap drop to the lone leader left at the front of the race.
This chase group eventually came back together before the foot of the final ascent of the Lago di Cei, commencing with just over 20 kilometres to race. On the lower slopes the group splintered with each rider fighting and pacing their way to the top. The overall race leader Van Vleuten moved at the front of the race and, having caught the lone leader, moved clear to take the stage while behind Labous came over the line in a small group racing for fifth place.
As a result of two strong days in the mountains, Labous moves up to ninth overall on GC.
