There's a shot in the preview with a guy kicking a block of wood. looks like it could be some sort of task?

That's probably a route info task or maybe one half of the detour. They have to find a US/South Korean/UN soldier and kick a board to get their next clue. Probably to the roadblock?

At some points they are self driving and at others are looking for taxis. ???

Here's the road sign Brooke and Claire are driving by, I would guess they are driving from the airport to the first clue and ditch the cars somewhere.

Their choice to the left there is Donggureung tombs:

Donggureung (The East Nine Tombs) is located just east of the Seoul Metropolitan area. It was the burial ground of some of the Joseon (Chosôn) dynasty (1392-1910) kings and queens.

I believe B/C are at the circled intersection below with the tombs to their left and the city hall to their right.
It appears that Hwy 6 will bring them all the way from the airport to where they are there.

I'm going to guess that the task is: Find the guy with the right headband and he'll kick open the block for you. I don't think the teams will need to do the kicking.

This definitely makes sense.

I think you mean Dongducheon which is the city where Camp Casey is located. Donggureung is a similar name but a different location. If they do turn north towards Donggureung they will be headed in the correct direction if they are on their way to the Camp.

Have we seen the Travelocity Roaming Gnome yet in the race? That means it's either on this leg or the finale (very awkward) that it'll appear.

The instructions I posted earlier for Daum are still working; here is a shot
of the bridge over the whitewater task.

Second the SLowhatch is amazing comment! :jam:

Teams could hold the piece for the taekwondoka(?) to kick the clue out of it. Would that make sense?

Ever since Travelocity took over as TAR main sponsor, I think there has always been a Gnome related task, but I might be mistaken, I did miss one or two races in between.

Crosses fingers that the Pit Stop stays where it is for the team release! Teams checked in on the night of Saturday 12 Jun, and if they are released on a Sunday at Statue Square... Epicness will ensue!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

(If there're any Hong Kongers here feel free to fill the rest in!)
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

A gathering?


Quote
Statue Square
Statue Square is famous for the Philipinos that gather there on every Sunday, otherwise it is just a little square in the middle of Central. However, it is surrounded by some of the most important institutions in Hong Kong and the region, such as the City Hall, the Legislative Council, the HSBC Building and the Bank of China Tower.

Quick thoughts:

B/C are doing the rafting and Claire is also doing the skating

Brooke is trying to kick the board so I guess this is a RB and the team member must do the kicking

Because of these 2 things I wonder if there is a double RB

Jill and Thomas are also doing the raft

This one is going to be a challenge to cap

If course it's Brooke who says the title
