If my simple-minded calculations are correct, depending on the ave speed of the stage, Despres would have to increase his ave speed ove Pain a relatively small amount to claim third. In other words: If Pain has an ave stage speed of 60km/hr then it will take 153 minutes to complete the stage If Despres has an ave stage speed of 61.6km/hr then it will take 149 minutes to complete the stage. Then again, I could be completely wrong? And if the pace is faster, for example if Pain averages 120km/hr, then Despres needs to average 126.6km/hr. Does that seem doable? Seems like it from my couch... Picking up 14 minutes is more problematic: Depres needs anywhere from 6km/hr to 27km/hr depending on average stage speed. Then again, I could be completely wrong?
