The Ag2r La Mondiale rider from France finished just behind Mathias Frank of IAM Cycling at the top of the Col de l’Ospedale, but Peraud matched his time to take the yellow jersey from Tom Dumoulin of Giant-Shimano, who finished a couple of minutes off the pace.
Frank came second overall, just one second behind Peraud, with Tiago Machado 19s back in third.
“I have a sense of duty accomplished,” said Peraud.
“The Criterium International was a little more open this year, and it was an opportunity not to be missed.”
