The sprinters had their chance to shine on Tuesday and Wednesday, but Thursday's Stage 12 of the 2017 Tour de France will see the peloton return to the mountains, with the Pyrenees on tap.
Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen was second ahead of Norwegian Edvald Boasson Hagen.
His Bora-Hansgrohe team could have used the win after losing world champion Peter Sagan to disqualification and general classification hopeful Rafal Majka in a crash, but Bodnar had his own reasons to chase glory as well. "I can just keep going".
"I said (Saturday) that I expected the general classification to be blown up and looking at it, it has", Froome said. Many believe Froome could have gone on to win the Tour for himself that day, but Froome refuses to engage in the speculation.
In 2016, Froome stopped to wait for three teammates who had crashed in a descent ahead of the climb up to the Mont Ventoux, and the rest of the peloton slowed down to wait on them. "I personally like to act like I don't have green on my shoulders because you saw a couple of days ago with the GC guys the race can very quickly be over", Kittel said.

The 214.5-km trek from Pau to Peyragudes will offer opportunities for the aggressive riders, but a solo effort will be doomed as Briton Froome's Team Sky outfit are experts in containing the opposition. "You just have to stay calm and get on with the job in hand". But the stage was much more stressful for some with some crashes at the back of the pelaton.
Froome said Friday's stage could be decisive and the next big battle between the contenders for overall victory. It will be another day for the sprinters before a mountain marathon of more than 200 kilometers the next day.
There will be a twist this time around, with the stage finishing on the steep gradients of the Peyresourde-Balestas airfield which was used in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies.
