adding this from the spoiler pages ( unfortunate for us some of the attachments were lost)

Heres the Tytyri mine and the Tytyri limestone mine


Tytyri mine museum, Lohja. Mining has been a source of livelihood in Lohja since the 16 th century, when Gustavus Vasa, King of Sweden and Finland gave his permission to start the first iron mine in this country. Limestone was first excavated in 1897 and industrial mining began in 1911. It became partly subterranean in 1947 when great blocks were droped from the surface quarry to a crushing plant, 110 metres deeper. In 1956 all mining was under the ground. Today the miners work at 350 metres. The network of tunnels crisscrossning under the lake and the town is over 60 kilometres long. A museum demonstrating the work in Tytyri mine was opened on a level 110 metres below the surface, in May 1988. For further information call Lohja Tourist Information, telephone, 019-3691 309 or Lohja Museum telephone, 019-3694 203
city of Tampere, Finland
Here's the stadium tower (72m). Kmz attached.

Phil was spotted in a park/restaurant in Helsinki, wich could also be true. Was he on the job or just having a drink is unknown

Just so happens there is a famous restaurant near Olympic Stadium (next to Opeara House) and in/near a park.  Perhaps Phil was having a coffee at Restaurant Töölönranta.   :-\   hey, it could happen    ;D  (see .kmz file attached)


Cool -- thanks, Signal!

Signal, do you know if all the Finland stuff happened 6/16? It seems like a lot. Maybe we have 2 legs in Finland before they move on to Spain?

Well, they were seen in Helsinki-Vantaa airport 16th, climbing the Helsinki Olympic Stadium tower 16th, Tampere and Ylöjärvi 16th, Turku 16th, so it looks like all happened same day. But I have to say that many have said that they've seen the participants here in the weekend (17th-18th) also, but cannot confirm that. The cars were seen in the highway probably going to port of Hanko in early last week, but I think they were just returning the cars to Germany, since the cars seen had german license plates just like in Turku. As mentioned before they were supposed to go Lohja with cars from Turku and there's no sightings after Turku so they could've went anywhere,  it's possible that there was other tasks to do somewhere and maybe they had to spent a night somewhere? that's just a guess.

It does seem quite a lot for one day, but example train trip Helsinki-Tampere takes just 2 hours, Ylöjärvi is less than 20 km's from Tampere, and train from Tampere to Turku takes about 2 hours also, so it's not that much travelling.

To me it sounds very boring actually, so I really hope they went some other places.
I got some new info,

Few sources have said that the race continued to Belarus after Finland. And I don't think it was just a connection point.
Oh and also there is some info about their "task" in Ylöjärvi. Obviously it was some kind of obstacle course at swamp :D
The landowner of the area is keeping his mouth shut, but nearby neighbours reported a helicopter and lots of people including security who kept the nosy ones far. The famous clue box was also seen there.

FWIW, here's something about swamps in Ylöjärvi.

Interesting quote:
There are only few swamps in this area. One swamp called Tappisuo around Lake Kotamusjärvi and Taaborinvuori area has remained in its natural state.

Edited to add:  WebCam of market area of town

Books, potted plants, small round tables...I'm thinking the cybercafe is in Tana. Here's a list; I found one picture here but no picture of the Hilton foyer yet.

seeing this pic, i would have to say the Lyns are safe because they would have "inspiration"... :woohoo:

Great researching mwooden  :)
Who possibly misses the train?  I'm thinking Dustin & Kandice on this one.
And maybe Tyler & James arrive at the Pit Stop first, only to find out that this could be a TBC leg.

Yeah, the clothes are confusing me, Puddin. ??? The Finnish spoilers seemed to put everything in the order listed above, and it does make the most sense in terms of travel.

ETA: Maybe when they found out they were doing mud, they threw on clothes that covered as much of their body as possible? Long pants? I know it's a reach but...

Well with two train rides one to the Detour and one to the roadblock.

We can assume which teams travel together.

We can guess (unless hours of operations are at eitehr tasks which is also quite possible).

T&J/D&K seen in same frame doing both detour and Roadblock.

R&K/ Cho's seen at detour in the same frame.

But could be either at roadblock.

Though I would have assumed its Cho's being lale for a train with having to do the repel being afraid of heights.

If we get more footage, perhaps we can judge some other progress.

Though not seeing Bama in the same frame at the detour hints that it might be them (of course, again thats if there aren't hours f operation that equilize all 5 teams).

Change of clothes could mean by the time they got to the place, it was closed and they had to wait until morning. That's what happened before in other seasons

LOL !! Signal tells us that it's the Lyn's who jump in the taxi! ......the title belongs to the polite team..but who?


THE TEAMS ARE FACED WITH A CLAUSTROPHOBIC ROADBLOCK AND ONE RACER COMES FACE-TO-FACE WITH THEIR FEAR OF HEIGHTS,
ON "THE AMAZING RACE 10," SUNDAY, NOV. 12

"Being Polite Sucks Sometimes" --
*The teams are faced with a challenging Roadblock that will test the racers' ability to stay calm in a claustrophobic setting,
*while one racer struggles to overcome their fear of heights, on THE AMAZING RACE 10, Sunday, Nov. 12 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
*As the intensity of the race picks up, one team's kind nature is put to the test when another team jumps in front of them in the taxi line. 
*Meanwhile, another team's frustration sets in when they miss a train, causing them to lose precious time.

The Cho's & Models are kind natured but I can't see the Bama's dissing the Cho's so it just might be Tyler & James who say the title?
