Thomas Voeckler (Europcar) grabbed overall victory in the Tour du Haut-Var thanks to a late escape on the second and final stage in the company of Julien Antomarchi (VC La Pomme-Marseille). The pair slipped clear with 7km to go and, with the overall win in his sights, Voeckler allowed his breakaway companion to cross the line first.

Fresh from winning a stage of the Tour Méditerranéen, Voeckler is clearly in fine form but the Frenchman acknowledged that he did not anticipate to be on the podium so soon after a truncated winter’s training.

“A month and a half ago, I didn’t think I was going to go as well as I’ve done since the start of the season,” Voeckler admitted afterwards.

The stage was animated by a lengthy escape by Jérémy Roy (FDJ). When he was swallowed up, Europcar wound up the pace on the peloton’s second and final ascent of the Côte des Tuillières. Pierre Rolland (Europcar) managed to forge clear in the company of Laurent Mangel (Saur-Sojasun) and Arthur Vichot (FDJ), but they were caught soon after crossing the summit.

On the way down, Voeckler sensed his opportunity and he caught race leader Samuel Dumoulin (Cofidis) napping with a clever attack on the descent. He was instantly joined by Antomarchi, and the duo combined well on the way into Draguignan and quickly built up a lead of half a minute.

By the time they reached the finishing straight, Voeckler knew that he was guaranteed the overall victory, and he was content to cross the line behind Antomarchi, who scored a prestigious win for his VC La Pomme outfit.
