Rabobank rider Kelderman had just enough to hold off the challenge of Czech cyclist Jan Barta, while the top French rider, Jean-Christophe Peraud, was just a second adrift in third place.

It was a step up from last year's showing from the Dutch 20-year-old, who last year had had to settle for second place in the prologue.

The first full stage, from Meximieux to Saint-Vulbas, takes place tomorrow. The five-stage tour concludes on August 13.
