The 31st Three Days of De Panne took place from April 3rd to 5th, 2007. The bike race was held in two stages, a half-stage and a short individual time trial over a distance of 549 kilometers. On the first two stages, large parts of the route program of the Tour of Flanders following on April 8th were in the program.



Despite a hilly stage course, the sprinters came out on top on the first three stages. Luca Paolini initially secured the leadership jersey with his victory on the first stage. The following victories of his rivals Daniele Bennati and Gert Steegmans on the second and third stages did not change anything in Paolin's leading position.

The overall winner of 2005, Stijn Devolder, secured victory in the final eleven-kilometer individual time trial . Overall victory went to Italian Alessandro Ballan , who until then had been second overall behind Paolini. Joost Posthuma followed with six and Bert Roesems with eleven seconds behind on the other places in the overall standings .
