COL DE L'OSPEDALE, France (AP) — Tour de France champion Cadel Evans won the Criterium International after finishing Sunday's third and final stage in fourth place.

The 35-year-old Australian held on comfortably in the day's final climb up to Col de l'Ospedale.

French rider Pierrick Fedrigo won the stage in a closely contested sprint from Rinaldo Nocentini of Italy and Lars-Peter Nordhaug of Norway to finish second overall, eight seconds behind Evans.

Michael Rogers, who was in second place overnight, placed third overall after finishing the undulating 111-mile Corsican trek from Porto Vecchio to Col de l'Ospedale in eighth.
