do you mean the church right near Piazzale Michaelangelo? If so, I agree that is one hell of a climb. I went to Italy this past summer, and although we took the bus up to it, we walked down from it back to our hotel. It was really hard and long, so I could totally see the racers doing that. I can't wait to see how Florence looks on TV lol after seeing it in person.

Bringing flights over from locations thread and tidying it up a bit


Dubrovnik to Frankfurt 

LH 2469/OU 0418  7:30am  9:35am FRA


From Frankfurt to Florence 2 options

10:50 12:15 LH4060
12:15 13:45 LH4062


going off timing for Episode 6 I think that they all could make that 7.30am departure.

I checked these combinations out. They never came up for me, but they are extremely valid and very direct and timely routes to get Dubrovnik to Florence. Congrats, patlini.
Good job patlini. :cmas9


Cheers guys  :cmas27

Maybe this is where we see the so called speed-bump? maybe its an extra detour option, a faster one that only one team can take?

Well, I was speculating that he Speed bump was a replacement for the Fast Forward and that it was gone just like the Yield.

And if so, then they can really make it anything the want.  And depending on how well they planned this leg and the next the speedbump reward might be anything.

1.  Skip just a portion of the episode (like a roadblock or detour)
2.  Skip both roadblock and detour and have the reward not be go to the next Pit Stop, but go to the mat.

Now if it was a TBC leg, you might ask, wouldn't that give that team a huge advantage in getting to the next destination before others?

Well yes and no.

On all the TBC legs (both regular and family edition) there has been a substanual bunching period before either the next task or the next way to travel out of the area.

1.  Season 6 (when it was planned as normal non elimination, until they realized begging was illegal) had a 12 hour break between clue to keep going (on computers where most teams already had between 1-3 hours to bunch up before they could even get that clue) and hours of operation.

2.  Season 7 had a 8-6 hour bunch before teams departing on train.  Then a 24 hour train ride, get to location and hit a 12 hour hours of operation bunch.

3.  Season 8 features the shortest bunch it was 8-10 hours hours of operation bunch.

4.  Season 9 had what should have been an 10-12 hour bunch between the plained flight out of Russia to Germany and then the hours of operation of the test drive.  But it was the only bunching point that didn't fully work for one reason.   While its true that Eric & Jeremy managed a flight early enough that they beat the producers (doesn't happen often), they still would have been bunched at the hours of operation.  But the computer failure in Russia prevented most racers in getting out in time.  This gave the 3 teams that did manage to get out a 3 hour head start (though only a few things would have changed with placement due to the time it took teams to complete all tasks after arriving (the biggest Fran & Barry would have finished 2nd).  It also had the unforunate effect (though if teams wouldn't have had serious navigation problems or managing to get the wrong flights, it wouldn't have been an issue) of causing the planned bunching points of the next two legs to only catch some of the teams.

5.  Season 10 had a twelve hour bunch before flights out to Kiev.

So a reward that just sent a team to the mat could still easily allow teams to all still be bunch for the 2nd half of the leg.


Hell even without large amounts of bunching, depending on the type of Fast FOrward teams could still be very close together.

I do hope it is a tattoo though.  After all, for most teams this is a once in a life time experience.  One that they should cherish.  And a tattoo would be a nice physical reminder.

I'm back to thinking that Chateau was right and this does sound like the Fast Forward and that this isn't a superleg, rather India like I originally thought, and the following episode is the superleg with 4 left.

Oh I think thats highly possible.  I just don't want people to automatically assume that because teams have a way to jump forward (especially if it isn't the tried and true Fast Forward), that it meant this episode had to be an elimination leg.

But with previews and tonight's episode, we might get something more solid to nail it down.

Nice Boingo! The Florence one looks good but Lucca is a ways away--unless part of the task is drive yourself there?

I agree, I would let the guy on the left do whatever he wants with me too haha, he looks really cute in that picture. ANYWAY...back to the race I suppose.

Since the Fast Forward is a tattoo, is it safe to assume that the grandfather team gets the quote? lol

I can't wait to see Florence in two weeks :D
