The question is will they want to... tomorrows stage is going to be DECIDEDLY more navigation, longer and in that instance, picking a start spot for SS 2 somewhere around # 10 to fifteen, could see you pull an early five to 10 minute advantage by end of leg two, if you can pull of some stealthy navigation and passes out on the piste... like HogWild mentioned last night when we were debating the pro's and cons of the prologue/SS1 and the multiplication factor (5?) for SS1 stage times.
