PIC © TIM DE WAELE Alberto Contador (Discovery Channel) won the final classification of Paris-Nice after a superb ride on the last stage around Nice. Lying in second overall behind Davide Rebellin (Gerolsteiner) before the stage, Contador attacked on the Col d'Eze with 21 km to go to solo in for victory. Caisse d'Epargne riders David Lopez Garcia and Joaquim Rodriguez finished second and third at 19 seconds, while Rebellin could only manage eighth at 22 seconds. Contador described the victory as the "greatest win in my career so far. I had won other stage races and other races, but the stature, the history and the profile of this Paris-Nice make it especially great." Rebellin finished second overall, while stage 6 winner Luis-Leon Sanchez (Caisse d'Epargne) was third.
