Although he will never wear the white ProTour leader's jersey in a race, Floyd Landis is nevertheless the first leader of the UCI's ProTour competition following Paris-Nice. Landis' next ProTour race is probably the Giro d'Italia, and he will almost certainly be overtaken in the overall standings before then.

The rest of the ProTour standings reflect the overall classification of Paris-Nice, with Patxi Vila (Lampre-Fondital) in second and Antonio Colom (Caisse d'Epargne) in third. Lampre-Fondital is the best team, ahead of Discovery Channel and Liberty Seguros, while Spain leads the nations ranking ahead of the USA and Luxembourg.
