Criterium International Stage 3: Riding Away

FDJ had ridden hard for their man, Thibaut Pinot, who finished third in the 2014 Tour de France.  However it was the man who finished second overall in the Tour, Jean-Christophe Peraud (AG2R) that took advantage of his FDJ's efforts.  With six kilometers left to climb to the summit and the finishing line, Peraud put in a blistering attack that none of the remaining peloton was able to answer.  Would it be enough for both the stage and the Maillot Jaune?
