MORE:



Roadblock in the cellar finding the right wine bottle

Those racks are the riddling racks where the bottles are stored during aging. They turn each bottle a quarter turn each week or so to get the yeast sediment to settle into the neck of the bottles. Later they will freeze the neck of the bottle, remove the cork and let the internal pressure force the frozen champagne with the sediment out of the bottle and quickly reseal it. It makes for clear and uncloudy champagne. It might have been a fun and messy roadblock to have the teams try to do that process, but I imagine any bottles they did would have been ruined (or at least unsuitable for selling), so perhaps the company didn't want to do it unless WRP paid a few thousand dollars for the wasted bottles.

Notice that those bottles are unlabeled. They probably have some distinguishing chalk mark they are looking for.  The search should be a challenge because as you can see in the background, there are many, many racks like the one he is looking at.

Sorry, I got my French cities mixed up.  Joan de Arc was tried and executed in Rouen not Reims.  Who can tell one French city from another? Especially in medieval times.

Screencaps: :hearts: with BIG thanks to a friend!!



MORE COMING....

When watching/coaching someone how to open a champagne bottle with a sword, it is not smart to stand in a location where you could also be opened by the sword.  If Jordan gets a chance with the sword, that dude should be behind the gate!

Both Brandy and Cord are wearing the wireless mics (to hear them while being lowered down the shaft, I suppose), so the sword thing must be the last part of the RB.

and if you break the bottle, you have to go back down the well, look through the cellars and find another bottle?

A two part RB?  Knock the cork off a bottle, receive second clue sending you down into the cellars to find a bottle marked with the TAR symbol.???

Maybe they have to open the bottle to get the clue out.

I think they get to knock the cork off AFTER they find the bottle in the cellar. That's why the Cowboys are smiliing.....they are finished!!!

And chop the head off that bottle!

What does Brandy have in her left hand?  She seems to be turning off her headlight with the right hand.

There are going to be many a happy team with all that champagne waiting to be consumed by someone, some time :yess:

This is probably obvious - but this photo of Jeff driving is on Rue Victor Hugo - just before the entrance to Tattinger.
He's going the wrong direction if he is driving directly from Wargmoulin though - which leads me to believe that the task in the vineyards comes before the Champagne tasks.

Well the promo clue says racers get lost on the detour..Are you saying that JJ are lost by going in the wrong direction here?

What I'm saying is that Jeff is driving in Reims in a direction that is not consistent with him coming directly from Wargemoulin to Tattinger's Saint Nicaise chalk caves. So either they were a little lost, or there was something that took them in another direction before the tasks at Tattinger Reims.
My guess is that they visit one of Tattinger's vineyards as part of a general task, find the special grapes, then travel to Reims for the Roadblock.

I think the grapes are a part of the Detour.

They mention Joan of Arc in their car, so they might be going to that statue by the Cathedral (my guess is for a Pit Stop, but it could also be for a general RI)

Any idea what those papers say on the car windshields? Just maybe Taittinger ID's or TAR related?? I can't get to read close-up....or maybe just flyers to "EAT AT JOE'S!Ha JK

Hello Jeff and Jordan!
What are you doing outside Vogue Urban Clothing in Reims? And more importantly - when did you get there and where were you before???

I note that Jeff is driving and does not have his coat on...
