Wilco Kelderman’s attempts to claw enough time back during the stage 20 time trial to shift up to fourth place overall at the Tour de France may have failed but the Bora-Hansgrohe rider is content that he will be walking away from Sunday's Paris finale having delivered the best performance possible. 

Kelderman entered the penultimate stage of the race sitting in fifth position overall, just 32 seconds behind Ben O’Connor (AG2R Citroën) in fourth, and there was reason to think the time trial could work in Kelderman’s favour.
