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.
It's the perfect stage for some A- riders take a win and have a chance to ride together with the respective team top rider.
I'd put my money on Faria or Gonçalves, KC

He, Ben, Rod and of course Fishy should do well, probably more down to the bikes holding up in the end, but we've seen from the guests at the Oz safari that your guys are quick.

Coma looks like he is really enjoying just watching the race (and fulfilling his duties to his sponsors by showing up on Eurosport without having to risk his life) . The difference in his behaviour with the camera compared to a typical post Special interview is outstanding!
I also noticed that. Like he said he has never seen this side of the Dakar, so he is using it to learn about what the other teams do. I owuld be doing the same.
