I agree with theschnauzers, it's just a super leg, so don't overthink it...

And yes, if you arrive at the pit-stop without something you need to pick up (items), Phil will send you back to retrieve it. Not with paper clues though, if you lose the paper, you need to have the kindness of other racer to tell you where to go... and if none of them wants to help... good luck.

On Leg 10 of TAR 10 in Morocco, Tyler and James were running to the pit-stop and forgot their lucky pendant... before Phil had to ask them to go back and retrieve it, they realized their mistake and went back. :funny:

The "double leg" of the early seasons has evolved, folks.

Keep in mind that around TAR 14 to 18 the mandatory 12 hour rest period became a thing of the past, and that since there's no minimum period for a rest period between legs, there can be no rest period, which is what we saw, twice, in the season where those were introduced.

The use of "keep racing" continues from TAR 9, I believe as in TAR 6 the double leg was an improvisation in Hungary that happened to work. So I suspect that is where some of the confusion is coming from. The "keep racing" used to introduce the midpoint of a double leg; now it signifies when a no rest period pit stop takes place.

Don't overthink this, folks, it really isn't that hard to figure out; and we haven't seen a traditional double-length leg since the last visit to Sydney, IIRC.
Yes, I know about Hungary and begging and all the other "keep racing" legs in TAR8 at the farm or Romber in TAR7.
So your simple explanation pretty much says we now get no-penalty non-elimination Legs. 

I only ask because it seems unfair some saved teams have to deal with a Speed Bump and others don't.

We just have to deal with it? There are teams who came in last and all they had to do for Speedbump was to untie a bunch of tangled ropes :res: while some teams had to solve a really hard puzzle in Malawi or in the worst Speedbump IMO ever, serve water to loads of people in India, which the traffic was just time wasting and the people were countless!

I understand where you are getting from, but this is just like any "THIS LEG IS NOT OVER" legs like in TAR 7, TAR 9 and many of the earlier seasons... it would have been lame if Phil actually told the teams they are the last team to arrive, this is a keep racing leg... BUT YOU GET A SPEEDBUMP... right? (considering he doesn't announce like the prize that the first team won and send them off immediately)

Other than TBC legs, are there any other twists accidentally created?

At the starting line Phil said that the second express pass to be handed over before the end of the fifth leg. And we have heard Marie say that she will not hand it over until on the mat of the fifth leg. Now I wonder what will happen if there is no other team around when they get to the mat. Will they be penalized for checking in without giving it away? Can/will they just wait for the next team?

I suspect Tim and Marie have until the last team checks in on the fifth leg; but that's just a guess on my part. As the team with the Express Passes, there probably was an unseen instruction sheet about handing over the second pass to another team, and trying to avoid the possibility that the team holding both Express Passes gets eliminated before handling the second one over to another team.

What's the time penalty for buying tickets for 1st class/business class?
If a team goes to the pit stop by cab when the clue says to walk on foot, when does Phil tell the team to go back from where they came from and when does he give them a 30-minute penalty? I can't find the differences in the situations. :crazy:

I still wonder to this day how the EP will work with the intersection if both of them were in the same season. :umn:

1. They had to switch to a later flight which had economic seats, putting them in last.
2. I doubt they can use it on a route info.  :funny:

Are teams no longer allowed to pay a taxi driver to follow them or kidnap locals in their vehicles to guide them?

I think only Charla & Mirna kidnapped locals, the rest were of their own free will.

Yes the are. Back in Season 17 when Jill & Thomas paid local taxi driver to lead them to the Pitstop, they recieved 30 minute penalty, making Chad & Stephanie pass them and be the first team to arrive.

We no longer have fern since Season 18 I believe  ???

2. I doubt they can use it on a route info.  :funny:

My guess would be that, generally speaking, a team could use the Express Pass to avoid a route info task such as the Ford Challenge.  That said, I could imagine that certain of such tasks could be designated as ineligible within the additional info.  I can agree that the EP couldn't be used if a team simply couldn't puzzle out a destination clue.  (how would that work anyway? Would Phil suddenly appear to hand the team an engraved detailed map to the next destination?   :funny:)
We can put a man on the moon, so why can't we have a Fast Forward in every leg?

I think this is a good guess.  Another guess is that Tim and Marie would not be allowed to check in to the pitstop while still in possession of the second EP.  We might actually find out what happens!

Yeah, but what can the exes do when arriving on the mat with the two EPs? Wait it out until last place like Zev & Justin? I don't think so. That would be a horrible rule for just a repetitive flank of cardboard even if a team is unbearable, annoying, or mean-spirited.
