Thor Hushovd (BMC) claimed his first win since September 2011 when he sprinted to victory on stage 1 of the Tour du Haut Var in La Croix Valmer, beating Tom Jelte Slagter (Blanco Pro Cycling) and Arthur Vichot (FDJ).

Hushovd’s 2012 campaign had been ruined by illness but the Norwegian used an extended off-season to build steadily towards the new season. After finding his race rhythm again at the Tour de San Luis in January, Hushovd rediscovered the winning touch in southern France to take the stage and the yellow jersey at the end of a hard-fought day of racing.

The early part of the stage was marked by a break from Rudy Kowalski (Roubaix Lille Métropole), Arnaud Gerard (Bretagne-Séché) and Dimitri Le Boulch (BigMat Auber 93) but although the trio built up a lead of 7 minutes at one point, they were swept up with over 20km still to race.

On the rolling finishing circuit, a dangerous six-man group featuring Laurens ten Dam (Blanco) and Alexandre Geniez (FDJ) managed to forge clear, but they too were reeled back in before the finish, while a late dig from Rein Taaramae (Cofidis) was also snuffed out 6km from home.

The stage was set for the group finish, and Hushovd was glad to put his troubled year behind him with a sprint win that augurs well for the weeks ahead. Hushovd carries the yellow jersey into Sunday’s second and final stage, which starts and finishes in Draguignan.
