Could Lance & Keri pull a Peter & Sarah and get hopelessly lost driving around Dubai? Hmmm.
Just here to visit.

A video from near the top. I doubt (even with binoculars) they could play spot-the-clue; they probably just go up and grab an info card.
An unofficial site here with lots of photos, video links, etc. Comparing the site's map with this photo, I'm guessing the horse is between The Address and the Dubai Mall (if the horse even figures in this episode).

I think we will see the horse...

here's what we saw: it was roughly 10:30 p.m. dubai time on sunday, july 26. we were coming out of urbano, a restaurant in souk al bahar. they were not in the restaurant; they were looking for a checkpoint outside. (it turned out to be near the dubai mall taxi stand, by a giant statue of a black horse.)


The source confirmed this as being the correct horse



and wp noted it was in front of Burj Dubai. And there is a signup sheet.

The sign up sheet is likely for one of the driving tasks.  I would guess it is for the desert (vs. race car) driving as this seems to be for both team members.

Since it is right in front of the Burj, I thought perhaps it had something to do with that. It is/was under construction still, perhaps they have to take the construction guys elevator up?? That alone could be pretty scary.

I was basing that on the idea that the race/Burj Dubai tasks are the Detours. Nothing has been official yet, unless I missed something.

detour thanks to BVM below and I'm with Slowhatch, they all probably go to the top to collect the first clue, probably the first task of the day.
Sign in sheet by the statue of a black horse.
next day --
Burg -- clue
Self drive
detours snowman/race car
roadblock (take a taxi?) find water in the desert

EW:
• In Dubai, competitors will be presented with a chilling Detour: They have to take snow from an indoor ski area and build a snowman outside in the scorching Middle East heat. “The quality of the snow changes instantly the moment you bring it out,” chuckles van Munster. “And the snowman can’t be a little one—it has to be five-, six-foot-high snowman with eyes and a real carrot in his nose

Yep, I agree; since both are suited up for the Autodrome, that must be the second half. If the lady saw the teams by the horse at 10:30 p.m., then they get lift tickets, go up the Burj the next morning, and pull a card telling them to grab cars out of the parking lot and drive to the dunes? Just guessing.

Given that we know there is a sign up sheet by the Burj Dubai, could there possibly be a task involving BASE jumping, repelling, etc?

Doesn't the promo say Race on a track or Race thru the Desert?? I thought that kinda implied Detour options, but guess there is still some leeway there. :lol:

I dunno? If you watch the video Herb says "i thought we may have to jump off .."

Not sure where Dan and Sam come in where we see them in the taxi? We're led to believe its in the desert though?

My thought was that teams would have a driver to get them through the desert.  It seems desert driving is tricky and that task would be handled by locals

But the only snow I know of is at Ski Dubai and I don't think they would use the same place in 2 episodes...and then theres the little shovels and all.

a very short commercial just ran "climb the worlds tallest building"

it looks early when Keri and Lance arrive, maybe waiting their turn?

To me it looks like this is the last leg for Mika & Canaan. They are at the tower much later than Lance & Keri, and things don't look good.

Then again, it could always be another non-elimination for Maria & Tiffany. :lol:

I do think there's an Hours of Operation at Burj Dubai, that's why Lance & Keri are still outside.

Lance and Keri are at the sign in sheet, the night before they hit the tower at least I think thats what I thought we've been thinking.

Look ................it's the next day now
