The course is:

Speedbump/Roadblock in Liechtenstein
Detour/Uturn in Zermatt
Pitstop>>Zermatt


Throw the route infos in wherever you want. :lol:

Thanks racer! Great summary. I thought of Joe and Heidi when I saw the W U turn making an appearance. If you are going to have a tool that puts one team in charge of another team's destiny, at least plan it so they have a chance to catch up. grrr.
However, with the chance of now being two teams having to backtrack makes it less unfair in this case.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

According to what has been posted it's some kind of luggage task at one of the local hotels. Teams acting like bellhops?  I couldn't find any pictures that matched with the outfits we see Jet and Cord wearing.  They kind of look like the horse-carriage driver outfits from two of the luxury hotels, but the colors are all wrong.   And they're more bellhopy than those outfits anyway.  Just didn't think they fit the color schemes of those two hotels.  If only we had a location shot!

It would be nice if there was a route info or task after the detour.  It would be pretty late at night by the time they finish detours, though.  What's there to do so late in the night?

Here's Neobie's report on the hotel business:


THE LOCAL HOTELS
There seems to have been a task with teams carrying luggage from the train station to hotels around the area. Teams were reportedly running up and down Bahnhofstrasse and Hinterdorfstrasse. Some possible hotels are the Mont Cervin Palace, the Hotel Phoenix and the Hotel Primavera. On another note, production was housed at the Hotel Ambassador, not far from the train station.

Physics alone is not enough.

Always a good idea to read the thread!! And as I said, the first 4 posts in this thread have updates and promos so you can find the answer there if you can't wade thru the whole thread.  :tup:

Ok, so it looks like Gary/Mallory were tied with the pack until a certain point with the slow taxi. The question it, when is the taxi? All I can tell is that there is a bunch of yellow buses and there is definitely a bus lane. Is it a train station? From the looks of it, it's not Zermatt, because of the buses and buildings. And I do know there are yellow buses in Liechtenstein. If I were to make a guess, it looks a little bit like Vaduz, Liechtenstein.
Amazing Race is Amazing. Ever noticed?

Gary/Mallory & Jet/Cord for TAR 18.

I guess this line was said by a team when they are on the W-Turn Mat or just right after it. LOL

Gary and Mallory are chasing down a taxi at the train station in FELDKIRCH, AUSTRIA. This is the Austrian jumping-off point to Liechtenstein, and where I based myself because Liechtenstein was so crazily expensive to stay in!

It's complete speculation because they showed their confessionals consecutively and they were both talking big.

By 'both,' do you mean Flight Time and Big Easy or the Globetrotters and the Cowboys?

In their confessionals (the Cowboys' and the Globetrotters'), they were both talking about being competitive. That's all I know.

One helpful thing I did see was the exact route they are taking on the mopeds. I also saw that Flight Time, Gary, and Jet are doing the Roadblock.

Since the roadblock is relatively easy... Gallory have that speed bump @ one of those  :duno:    That wont help Gallory catch up w/ the pack much. Gallory need to not be u-turned in order to not be eliminated... Its a matter of who gets to that U-turn first. I really hope Jet and Cord get to the u-turn first and u-turn somebody... hopefully kent and vyxsin  :yess: :yess: :yess:
