The 2011 Eneco Tour was the seventh running of the Eneco Tour cycling stage race. It started with an individual time trial in Amersfoort in the Netherlands on 8 August and finished on 14 August 2011 in Sittard-Geleen, also in the Netherlands.

The race consisted of seven stages, including the race-commencing prologue, as well as another individual time trial held in Roermond in the Netherlands. It was the 20th race of the 2011 UCI World Tour season. The race was held one week earlier than during the previous season and also one day less in length. Like the previous years, parts of the Netherlands and Belgium were covered.

The race was won by Team Sky rider Edvald Boasson Hagen, who claimed the leader's white jersey for the second time in three years – after his previous triumph in 2009 – after a strong finish on the individual time trial stage, and maintained his advantage to the end of the race, winning the race's final stage in Sittard-Geleen. Boasson Hagen's winning margin over runner-up Philippe Gilbert of Omega Pharma–Lotto was 22 seconds,[2] and Garmin–Cervélo's David Millar completed the podium, 6 seconds behind Gilbert and 28 seconds down on Boasson Hagen.[2]

Boasson Hagen also played a prominent part in the other classifications, as six top-ten placings over the week earned him victory in the points classification,[3] while his overall triumph also meant victory in the young rider classification.[3] Team RadioShack finished on top of the teams classification, after finishing tied with Team Sky in the standings. Team Sky had originally been classed as winners by a second, but a protest from Team RadioShack general manager Dirk Demol, overturned a one-second split in the field and Team RadioShack won the countback on time trial timings.[1]
