Kittel's command of this year's Tour de France sprint stages is now approaching record levels.
Dylan Groenewegen of the Netherlands and Edvald Boasson Hagen of Norway rounded out the top three in the stage.
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.
"Most of you know me and know that I am quite optimistic, but now the priority is to recover and, if I do it, try to do the best I can", Contador told journalists on Monday.
"I'm not so happy about today", said a dejected Bodnar.
SC Constitution bench to hear Aadhaar challenge on privacy issue
It was argued that Aadhaar card is an invasion of privacy and a bad violation of basic human rights. I can only say that a matter can be disposed of by a nine-judge bench.
Tour de France stage 12 will start at 6:25 AM ET and with the live television viewing in the United States by NBCSN which will begin the coverage at 8:00 AM ET.
But Frenchman Romain Bardet, who is third overall behind race leader Chris Froome, was not so fortunate.
The Quick-Step Floors rider faced the prospect of seeing victory slip through his fingers after a spirited effort from Poland's Maciej Bodnar.
Froome, the three-time Tour champion, will be wear the yellow jersey for the 50th time on Wednesday - joining five-time Tour victor Jacques Anquetil in fourth place on the all-time list behind Eddy Merckx (96), Bernard Hinault (75), and Miguel Indurain (60).
"The last games I've always got the right gaps".

Murray wasn't looking good with his injury. "It's nice to see different guys, maybe". "I think he's just in better position". This time around, Federer is yet to drop a set and has just had a number of months off, so fatigue shouldn't be an issue.
On Thursday they head from Pau to Peyragudes, a stage which takes Froome back to the slopes where he was famously made to wait for Sir Bradley Wiggins in 2012. You just can't get it started again.
Today's stage from Eymet to Pau is another set up for the sprinters and the threat of crosswinds on the road south could mean a return to more stressful racing after yesterday's more relaxing ride.
While none of Froome's rivals lost time, they will be frustrated to have endured nervy moments on a seemingly benign stage before a summit finish on Thursday's stage 12. Legend has it that Simpson's last words were "put me back on the bike", which he duly was before collapsing a second time.
"It's a massive blow to the team", Froome said.
"I nearly can not believe what's happening here at the Tour".
Why? Kenneth Dion Lever Gardendale shooting: 3 dead, on the run
Lever was placed in York County Prison on October 12, 2015, on the first case on a $100,000 bond, but was able to get bailed out. The page says that he studied math at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, so he has a connection to the area.
The one sprint Kittel didn't win was on the fourth stage, when he was held up by a crash in the final kilometer and found himself too far back to have any chance of catching those in front.
