Ireland’s Nicolas Roche finished in 15th place overall, 16 minutes and 59 seconds behind Contador.
Cavendish (HTC-Columbia) won the 102.5-kilometre 20th stage from Longjumeau to Paris for his fifth win of the 2010 Tour and the 15th of his career - but it was not enough to secure the points classification leader's green jersey.
