I'd love to see it but it would take unbelievable riding (and risks) to get the time back now.
Its still a long stage and quite a few big dunes early on and medium ones for at least 200k if not more - he would get the 6 mins back, but unlikely to take the 25 secs, as the end will flaten out and Coma is on a quicker bike if they can ride flat out, but I don't think they can, so you never know!
