Apskip, we fortunately did not have to guess much in Angkor Wat due to the many spoiler sources we had.

I posted some of the ACTUAL times (mostly 1130 to noon) of the racers doing the Roadblock here:

Also, as I told you yesterday, your spec on IC854 is definitely correct. Teams were spotted on that flight for sure.

So some (three teams) were seen Siem Reap to Bangkok here:

Siem Reap to Bangkok--on flight w/ 3 teams>> http://myweirdmindwonders.blogspot.com/2008/05/just-to-catch-up.html

But I think this could actually be the same as what Jason described (since we know at least 5 of the teams were on that flight with him) and that other poster just didn't see all the teams...

Jason>> describes  5 teams on his flight (except for Ken/Tina) but thought there  "might have been another"

And interestingly, also from Jason: (italics mine)

On a similar note, I kind of feel a little bad about reporting my conversation with the racers (Kelly and Christy) because they look like idiots but I've decided not to say which ones they were and anyway, that's pretty much what happened so I'll leave it up. They also went the wrong way when in the airport. (Bangkok) I mentioned but didn't explain that earlier but they actually passed through customs when everyone else went directly to the international terminal. I felt terrible for them because the cameras were on them the whole time as they stood in baggage claim trying to figure out what to do to get to the international departures and the cameraman and sound guy just stand there staring at them without saying a word obviously. It's very surreal.

Perhaps this is why we don't see them in the Delhi Airport Immigration pictures from Alicia?? Could that have caused them to miss IC 854?? :duno:

I think that they would have enough time to make their flight even if they went through customs.

Peach, the actual times of racers doing the Roadblock are nice, but the pitstop times are even better. It appears based on the information you have provided(which I obviously did not use since I was deriving the estimated timing piece-by-piece) that my times for the tasks are about one hour less than the expected actual from your report. I will go back and add a one-hour fudge factor to accumulate the total extra differences through all of the tasks.

peach they obviously don't miss their flight  because in the extended preview you can see Kelly/Christy in the shot with tony/Dallas at the detour.

but when Andrew and Dan are there nobody is in the shot? so  are they in the lead or in the back?

Please Hold While I Singe My Skull
Mother Nature foils one team when a windstorm blows away their Detour.
In helping India’s taxi industry go green, racers turn a little green themselves.
A budding romance between competing racers causes their teammates to question their focus.
One racer lashes out as their team reaches its boiling point.

Windstorm = Frat boys
Racers get green paint on themselves
Dallas/Star so mom and brother aren't happy

racer lashing out either Sarah or Terence at each other by the looks of it

Michael well spotted on the detour

what i also find interesting is that the taxi ride with the manglers is in the daylight and the detour is in the dark.

Sunset was at 6.59pm

looking at weather data for May 6th

http://www.wunderground.com/history/airport/VIDP/2008/5/6/DailyHistory.html?

there are reports of windgusts and widespread dust in the 9.30 -10.30 timeframe

 :lol:  Found this pix of a (typical) outdoor "laundry house" in downtown Delhi.  If you look closely at the laundry promos, you can see these type of washing stalls in the back.  There could be hundreds of these in Delhi.   :groan:

The slide show at the beginning of this topic also shows the Qutb Minar.  Do we know if they go there?

Please Hold While I Singe My Skull
Mother Nature foils one team when a windstorm blows away their Detour.
In helping India’s taxi industry go green, racers turn a little green themselves.
A budding romance between competing racers causes their teammates to question their focus.
One racer lashes out as their team reaches its boiling point.

Apparently, a windstorm gives Andrew & Dan a really bad day at the Detour!  If teams get green paint on them, that might explain clue #2.  Clue #3 obviously refers to Dallas & Starr, so Toni and especially Nick question their focus.  I think Clue #4 is Ken lashing out at Tina at last but it could also refer to Terence & Sarah.

Anyway, I think Andrew & Dan finish last but are spared by a non-elimination leg.

:lol: back to square one

So the auto rickshaw painting/Roadblock comes first

I see who I think is Christy in her dark pink tank top along with Andrew, Toni & Dallas and of course Ken and Tina ..bunched

I wonder if they have a task to do before the roadblock? and I want to check sunset times in New Delhi as well.

Wide spread dust, I've never seen that as a weather condition option  :lol:. Could be what Dandrew are dealing with during the dhobis detour.
