Although Vansummeren's role is primarily that of a domestique, he competes as a team leader during the classic season. In 2011, Vansummeren won the biggest race of his career, Paris–Roubaix. Vansummeren won the race after escaping from three other riders with 15 kilometres (9.3 miles) remaining, winning by nineteen seconds at the velodrome in Roubaix. He was victorious, despite riding the final 5 kilometres (3.1 miles) with a flat tire. Vansummeren also won the 2007 Tour de Pologne and rode the Tour de France nine times.
Vansummeren signed with AG2R La Mondiale for the 2015 and 2016 seasons. In June 2016 he announced his retirement from the sport after being diagnosed with a heart problem which had been detected in February at the Tour of Oman and resulted in him missing the classics season.
