Belgian Philippe Gilbert (Française des Jeux) made amends for losing the GP de la Marseillaise (after being sent the wrong way) by taking the 37th Tour du Haut-Var in a three man sprint. Gilbert, also a winner of a stage of the Tour Méditerranéen this year, beat Ruggero Marzoli (Acqua & Sapone) and Cédric Vasseur (Cofidis) in the run to the line. Favourite Davide Rebellin (Gerolsteiner) finished fourth, at 18 seconds.

The 181 km race around Draguignan also marked the first round of the Coupe de France, a season long points score competition for French riders and riders on French teams. As such, the French riders were active early on, with Christophe Agnolutto (Agritubel), Jérôme Pineau (Bouygues Telecom), Rémi de Grégorio and Jérémy Roy (Française des Jeux) all getting away in early breaks. Quick.Step, keeping Paolo Bettini's chances alive, maintained control of the situation and the peloton was together with 50 km to go.

As the climbs started in the finale, Addy Engels and Bram Tankink (Quick.Step), and Michele Scotto d'Abusco (Lampre-Caffita) escaped with 25 km to go, and were joined by David Moncoutié (Cofidis), who promptly attacked. Moncoutié maintained a half a minute lead over a group containing Philippe Gilbert (Francaise des Jeux), and was caught with 12 km to go. That was the moment that Gilbert, Vasseur and Marzoli made the winning move, riding away from the next chase group that contained Rebellin and finishing with an 18 second advantage. Gilbert was just quicker than Marzoli in the sprint, while Vasseur showed his class again to finish in the top three.
