When Brent and Catie are stacking the wine glasses and then Brent pours the wine and they fall. Does that mean they fail the Fast Forward task or can they try and re-stack them to complete the task?

I believe the glass stacking/pouring is one side of the Detour.  Brent mentions that they might have already been able to find the marked cluster of grapes (which would be the other side of the Detour).

Pierry is about 30 km south of Reims (and the Champagne caves) based on GE.

 :lol: given there are about 3 square miles of vines surrounding the chateau (not really sure how many of them are Taittinger's), the pyramid pouring task doesn't sound all that tough...  :lol3:

..I'm sure they will limit the grape searchers to a pre-defined area..  :res:  :keeta:

So there might not be a Fast Forward used this leg of the race? If Jeff does have a Fast Forward clue maybe they get lost on the way there? While the other teams decide to not try the FF task.

We don't hsve any firm evidence of a FF...except one corner of a clue that could be green OR blue.

I'll do the screencaps on these tonight after work!! Thanks for the video!

Just got this from CBS (for the first time this season):

Quote
CBS Sports live coverage of the NCAA Basketball Championship Tournament on Sunday, 3/21 could delay start times for 60 Minutes (7pm ET), Amazing Race (8pm ET), Undercover Boss (9pm ET) and Cold Case (10pm ET).

If so, you'll receive a new message on Sunday with exact details of revised start times.

CBS EYE-lerts do provide that service, but it cannot predict how long the delays will be. Based on experience from the last several years, I estimate that the East Coast delays for both March 21 and March 28 only will average about 15 minutes and top out at 30 minutes unless there is a multiple overtime NCAA game.

We'll still have about an hour's heads up, as 60 Minutes will still air before TAR. But I'll do my best to relay their information Sunday night once something comes in my inbox.

Do we see Louie & Michael in the footage of the detour and roadblock (I don't remember seeing them or Steve & Allie),  with the possibility of a fast forward I wouldn't be surprised at all if either of those teams went for it (or Jeff & Jordan, but since we don't think they survive this leg, then it would mean they really screwed up a fast forward).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Louie & Michael are the only team we don't see in any previews for this leg. Hmmm...

Thanks Peach.

If that green clue was the Fast Forward clue (and it very possible is at this stage of the race, lately its been early to middle of the season), then I would assume that someone would go for it.

Usually teams that go for it are desperate to stay alive or the first team to get the clue.

If there is no equalizer at the start of the leg then it would be stupid for Louie & Michael to not go for it.  And of course it is possible even with an equalizer that they happen to get to that clue either first or before most teams.

Of course, it is possible that Jordan & Jeff go for it, either not realizing someone else went for it, or getting to the clue first and then screwing up on something basic like being able to find it (which I would laugh my ass off).

In the u-tube vid on page 1, at 11 seconds, someone says "you've got to be kidding me" as they are going into the vineyards - It looks like maybe  Louie and Mike???

Well that certainly rules out a fast forward for Jordan & Jeff and the appear to be ahead of Steve & Allie.

That very well might be Louie & Mike (Certainly their voice) and looks to big to be Dan & Jordan or Jet & Cord.

Seems to be crazy audio editing to me.  It seems to be Steve saying.........."We have to find a bunch of grapes" and then Mike says......."You got to be kidding".........It seems there is an audio splice between the two, to me.

:yess:  had it the first time... the pyramid pouring is at the Taittinger vineyards of Chateau de la Marquetterie carriage house in Pierry.

Pierry is about 30 km south of Reims (and the Champagne caves) based on GE.
Pierry is only 2 miles from the center of Epernay and the distance gator27 says from Reims. I am hypothesizing that the sequence of tasks will start in Reims and then finish in or near Epernay.

That gives teams some options in getting to CDG airport. Backtracking to Reims does not make sense. It would be preferable to go to the 22 km Chalons-en-Champagne TGV station. With its direct trains to CDG, that would appear to be the quickest way to CDG.

I will add more after I do some train research. Her are the schedules for the TER trains Epernay to Paris-Est:

Epernay     Departure     5.22     6.34     6.56     8.07     8.38     8.56     9.47     09.59     10.48     12.56     12.56     13.06     15.19     16.42      16.53     17.45     17.45     18.43     19.03     19.31     20.47     20.24     21.33     21.57
PARIS-EST    Arrival    6.42    7.50    8.17    9.21    9.52    10.13    10.59    11.11    11.58    14.10    14.14    14.26    16.29    17.54    18.07    19.04    19.04    20.05    20.16    20.50    22.06    21.37    22.45    23.10

I am not providing the days-of-the-week because it gets complex and almost all trains run 7 days.
This obviously takes a maximum of 1.5 hours  and as little as 70 minutes.

There are options to get from Paris-Est to CDG. The best route is get to Gare-du-Nord and take the RER B which runs many times every hour. By cab if not in the afternoon rush hour it should not take more than 10 minutes by taxi. There are no direct buses. RER-B does not stop at Paris-Est. From Gare-du-Nord to CDG-Roissy takes about 15 minutes and RER-B runs from 455am until 1215am. It runs ab out every 3 minutes from 7am until 9pm and then is about 12 trains per hour druing the other operating hours.

From Chalons-en-Champagne TGV station, schedules are:

05:19   06:14   06:57   07:15   08:15   10:19   10:22   10:23   12:12   14:24   16:16   17:16   17:57   18:16   19:07   20:19
                                             
06:53   07:53   08:00   08:53   09:53   11:53   11:53   11:53   13:53   15:58   17:53   18:53   19:00   19:53   20:41   21:53

Again, most of these trains run every day, so I have not tried to copy over the complex details (it took me hours the last time I tried).

and I will do my best to figure out ahead of CBS when 60 Minutes will tip off. The "5pm" games are now revised to 508pm, 520pm and 525pm, but only the latest-finishing of them matters as CBS has shown that its telecasts will catch all possible game endings in a time slot. There may be Overtime in any of the games, which could extend them beyond a "normal" 2 hours with all those timeouts at the end of each half. I will guess that the Duke/California game will NOT be the last one finished, as Duke has a big edge and the game should not have as many starts/stops as the other 2 games. That means that I see a 725pm 60 Minutes start tonight unless there is Overtime.
