 I see theres a wooden path through Nigula Nature Reserve, Estonia.

A nature study path has been laid at the nature reserve, including a 6.8-kilometer-long boarded walk.

ETA: not the same *sigh*

The closest spot I could find is Lossi Plats, next to the Nevsky church and below the castle. (map here; the trouble is, they would seem to be heading in the other direction, towards St. Marys)

Who says they race to the Pitstop? ???  Coould just be to cars or another part of the challenge, or whatever, they may have a ways to go.

We know that either Matt/Gary OR the Trotters go, but it is not a 100% sure which one. There is some vague report of a pink haired guy being seen at the Prague Castle, which IS supposed to be the Pitstop there.

Why is everyone else in their undies and the Trotters get shorts and T-shirts??

That what i thinking... amd trotters are so clean..

I don't know if I can post this here but oh well.

There is something I don't understand:

Sam and Dan are doing the Mud Detour while Meghan and Cheyne (most likely) are there too. Once they have finished the task, they run to the pitstop in a race against the Globetrotters. However, don't we know taht it is Flight Time and Big Easy that are out?

The question is: What are Meghan and Cheyne doing still in the Mud Task while the team who will be last is in front of them?

We clearly see that Sam and Dan are in front of them.

Correct me if I'm wrong!

And Meghan seem laughing??  :duno:

Some shot's of St MAry's inside:

And there is something called The Fersen's sepulchral chapel which sounds promising, :lol:

If Sam and Dan are ahead, The Trotters are running behind them. Meghan and Cheyne are in the mud.

Could this be another shirtless team?

:lol:  Who knew Tallinn peat bogs could be such a tourist attraction.   :funny: :res:

Tallinn bog tourism

eta: According to this article, the Lahemaa National Park "is one of the main tourism drawcards in Estonia"  Just happens to be the site of the Viru Bog (but it's about 50 miles outside of Tallinn).  meh....  :res:
that might be it Boingo!

A number of nature study paths and cultural history paths have been designed to acquaint the general public with the beautiful and variegated landscapes of Lahemaa.

and what else is there? how about Sagadi Manor

or Palmse Manor House

Any chance the guy is just a mandolin-for-hire and the building is the Blackhead house (source)?

Ooh, a U-turn? I would've expected one in Prague, but I guess that works too.

Poor Matt and Gary. Their lowkey attitude really impresses me; that's how you should experience the Race. At least I still have the GTs!

I think this [Estonia] leg will be either another NEL or a TBC leg, then the 5 remaining team will be flying to their next destination and that'll be Prague.  Who knows? :duno:

VERY unlikely to be two NEL's back to back.

I believe:

This leg DOES have a speedbump, and MIGHT have a U-Turn as Season 12 did.

There is one more NEL, most likely in Prague.

I do not believe we have any TBC's this time. :angel
