We have no evidence whatsoever to suggest Niagra....but anything is possible! Just remember that Ontario has tons of corporate Amazing Race style events.

I saw that guys tweet about the race, on more of the tweets, by the same person he mentioned he met the producers and crew.

Can you give me the person's twitter id, so I can ask him where exactly in the city he saw it.

I've already questioned him several times. He works at a carwash and says a convoy of race staff stopped by. He is not in Toronto if that's what you are wondering.
There is not a whole lot of evidence to back this lead up so we should probably leave him alone.

The twitterer is in Brampton - which is just outside of Toronto and very close to YYZ.
Its not inconceivable that they were prepping cars for staging at the airport, although it doesn't seem likely they would publicize what the cars were to be used for.

You could also consider they could connect through an American city like Houston, Miami, Seattle, New York, Detroit, Chicago, or Atlanta.

London gives a lot of flight options, which they tend to like doing. But from LA they tend to go to South America first, or travel East->West.

You are certainly welcome to go seach all those cities and look for flights.......be sure to figure in the connection flight and layover times for flights from LAX to each one of those cities.

So if that hint was right about one season 12-17 not having any representing teams..

Season 17
Season 14
Season 12

All have possibly sighted teams from those respective seasons.

So 13,15,16 might not have any representatives. We will see though.

I'm guessing 15.
Do we know if there's 11 or 12 teams?

They appear to be heading east not west!

They usually go eastbound or southbound on the race and only went westbound like TAR10 and TAR15. TAR13 they went south to Brazil and Bolivia and cross west to New Zealand.  East/South is more reasonable.

It would be a unique twist for original TAR to start at night; they've never done that before to start the Race; whether other editions have done so, i do not know.

I imagine Phil's opening speech like this "for these teams, the sun set early before, but as the sun goes down, the night life begins..."
