Is the glass half empty or half full? It depends on how you look at it. Although Katie and you are technically correct that 4 total days (one for only 26 minutes) were involved, it was still only 2.7 days elapsed time. I find what you and Katie are stating very misleading.

Another element to consider is the number of time zones involved in the travel. That's more of a subjective sense for the racers actually doing the traveling.

Which is a roundabout way of saying that for the teams, it must have felt like four days of travel, and teams would have had to get ready for their release from the pit stop in Hanoi, especially if they got to sleep during their rest period. So I can understand that perception of four days in the comment.

Here is possibilities for what could happen once teams reach Zurich airport (the obvious entry point into Switzerland since the nonstops arrived at 0610 on Nov. 28 and 0616 on Nov. 29):

trains to Brig:
dep. Zurich airport 0813 arrive Brig 1031
                              0840                  1102
                              0843                  1102 (change in Bern)   

trains to Visp (obviously the same ones):
dep. Zurich airport 0813 arrive Visp 1040
dep.                       0840 arrive         1112
dep.                       0843 arrive         1112 (change in Bern)
and the same pattern at :40 and :43 after each hour
