2.05 at minus 15km. They still have some chance, but a lot of team are working very hard right now.

interesting thing will be that top sprinters team will be tired to set up a proper train: some underdog team might be able to take the lead in the final kms

At the risk of rehashing old ground, you can cut a gap by 5mins instantly if you want to - would be more interested to know what the maximum distance between them was on a flat stage like this.

If the chasing group is 10 minutes behind and then instantly doubles its pace, it is suddenly 5 minutes behind.

Cavenditch won - looked like Nikki moved him forward a little near the end but to be honest I had very little idea where he was until he was in perfect position at 300m to go, 2nd wheel.

Cav was nowhere to be seen in the last km, until someone from either Cannondale or CSF brought him in perfect position in 2nd place.
