Ha, thanks Chateau! That's a technique I can never figure out...
The timeline for the first half of the race looks like this then:
~8.10am: Train scheduled to arrive in Singapore.
~9.00am: From experience and by working backwards, the train arrives late. Brent/Caite have trouble finding a taxi.
~9.20am: Teams arrive at the Singapore Flyer (or nearby), receive their Detour, and are presented the Fast Forward option.
~9.30am: Teams arrive at their respective Detour locations.
~9.45am: Their briefing done, Daniel/Jordan begin the Flyer climb. Also, Michael/Louie switch to ice-cream.
~10.00am: Michael/Louie begin the ice-cream option of the Detour.
We have our U-Turn at Istana Park, then not sure which comes first: Sentosa or the shipyard.
We know they all end early afternoon at the Marina Barrage.
It is close to impossible getting a taxi at the shipyard; Michael/Louie will lose at least 15min. My educated guess:
1. Daniel/Jordan (due to Fast Forward)
2. Jet/Cord (from what we've seen, doing better with taxis than Brent/Caite)
3. Brent/Caite (from what we've seen, doing worse with taxis than Jet/Cord)
4. Michael/Louie (self-U-Turn, losing taxi at Ulu Pandan)
5. Carol/Brandy (U-Turn)
