Thank you, Prophet, your deductive reasoning and in-depth analyses never cease to amaze me. I am eagerly waiting for more contributions on your part once we are provided with more promos. :tup:

My photo-stitching program is on the fritz, so bear with me...
First, the overview: from bottom to top the arrows are the visitors center, the cascades/yak bridge (baishui falls, I think), and Spruce meadow.

Second, the R/C incident occurs at this turnoff which leads up the the Spruce meadow skilift; compare the rock on the left and the directional arrows on the post. R/C had been coming from the uphill road which leads to the Yak meadow lift (maybe those small trams run up to Spruce meadow, I don't know). Photo source.

Is this Christina, just in front of Cord?



That person has a very light jacket and the sports shoes. They seem to match Christiana in the other video where she jumps ouf of the electric tram. It would be nice to get some screen caps of Christina to match with the unknown yak rider.

It looks like only one team member rides the yak, and we see Ron riding, so that's probably not Christina, but I could be wrong.

That's why I think there will be a Double Roadblock.

The Yak task is called a Route Marker, though.  Both team members participate, but it looks like only one actually rides the yak.

I don't have access to the press photos, but the photos that have been posted do contain EXIF data.  Here's the description of Cord's photo:

Quote
"This is the Most Stupid Day Ever (Liijang, China)" -- For this Route Marker, cowboy brothers Cord (pictured) and Jet must travel to Jade Drago Mountain River where they will saddle up a yak and lead it across the river for a photo with a tourist in order to receive the next clue on THE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, March 13 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Strangely - all of the photos were taken within 5 minutes of each other... or someone is messing with the EXIF info.
And I do believe that is Christina in the photo with Cord.

It's not Christina in the photo with Cord, she's wearing dark shoes in the video, the shoes in the promo are definitely white/light in color.

The person also seems to be somewhere close to Cord in height

What about Luke?

I was wrong - its not Christina - its Margie.
You can see the jacket she's wearing when they arrive at the pitstop in Japan - slightly quilted with a stripe down the side.

Good pick up, WP.

I just wonder how many of the 10 million US Amazing Race watchers think that the show/racers are caught up in the tsunami in Japan today???

And we now prove why I'm a math major, not an artist  :snicker:

Looking at the pictures, I'm pretty sure that these (Jaime / Mallory / Zev at the base) all happened in a relatively short time frame, what with the yak-handler being present in all three and, I think, Mallory's head scarf in the final picture. This assumes that each team has a different yak handler.



Also, I thought I saw a shot of several teams sprinting up a flight of stairs to, I'm guessing, the river for the yak riding (or it could be to the Spruce Meadow for the RB). Either way, I'm thinking we might be getting a bunch point.
