Your pretty Amazing Slowhatch!  :jumpy:  .. maybe they are at a different roundabout looking for the right roundabout?

Hmmm...they still have that "one team encounters a speed bump" thing on there...
Just because I can - the Swedish word for speedbump cracks me up...

From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere

Aw, c'mon, the Roadblock question should be "Who's got hay fever?" I knew it wouldn't be a perfect duplicate.

So from the photos we can see the Trotters behind the Brothers at the detour.



So they are together

And Team Zebra and the Farmers are together.




I know this is all speculation but it seems like The brothers are first at the Roadblock and that the Trotters and Meghan Follow behind.

So Zebra and the Farmers are bring up the rear.  :girly

Just a question....

Whats with the Big Red X on the Bottom of Sam & Dan's Gnome?
Look at the video, theres a big Red X on the Bottom of the Base of the Gnome....Maybe a twist in the race like in Season 7? :duno:

Yeah, probably like season 7, the gnome with a special marking at the bottom wins that team a trip. I can't recall if the red x is there to cover the marking? Phil removes the tape to reveal the trip or not? Maybe someone with a better memory can recall.

Looks like the brothers and Meg/Cheyne arrive at the Grona Land together. So thanks to the bloggers we know that The Globetrotters arrive first and Brian and Ericka arrive last, fwiw

I don't remember if the big red X IS the special marking or the something to be removed...but somebody gets a goodie!

Could the RED X be marking the winning gnome? or perhaps a losing gnome?

I think there was a certain symbol if a team got a winning prize. Red X's might mean you don't get the gnome prize?

Curious how they get to the hay bales task. Don't see any cars or bicycles in the previews.
In season 6 they took the metro to Haggvik station and rode bicycles from there.

Well, notice the bottom of the Trotters' gnome compared to Dan and Sam's.

I have a feeling that red "X" will work in Sam/Dan's favor when they get to the pit stop.

Im gonna throw my 2 cent in that the reason Sam and Dan's gnome got red X is that the gnome may be the replacement? My team's gnome got broken into several pieces during China leg. We got the replacement at the Opera house and it doesn't have the clue on it. I don't think the red X means anything tho. I may be wrong!

Perhaps the train and taxi?

The show description said racers have to pick out a travelocity gnome from it's Swedish cousins.  Could the  red X mean that they picked out one of the wrong gnomes?

So, from what I see:

Gnome task

Detour (TNT/?)

Switchback

Pitstop


Phil: Sweden is a land of gnomes. Using a binoculars, teams will have to spot a gnome, and have keen eyes to find the Travelocity roaming gnome, among his Swede cousins. The first to help bring the gnome home (by bringing it to the pit stop) will win a prize.





From here!

How about Karlaplan ...

There's a roundabout with a fountain in the middle called Karlaplan (which a team might hit traveling south from the airport to Grona Lunds), but I can't quite match the building with the Dutch gables.
