These may be the last famous words, BUT for the cowboys a double u-turn is better than a normal u-turn. They are always VERY quick at performing tasks, that's where they usually catch up. If another team is in their same predicament, they might pull ahead - providing they don't get there last or something like that.
Now, I thought about a strategy to counter that...if two teams decide to cooperate with the U-Turn to just affect the cowboys, two teams can agree that:
one of them U-Turns the cowboys and
the other team u-turns a team that is already ahead of them (to cancel the second U-Turn)
farfetched but it could work in theory
One thing we know for sure is that the cowboys are u-turned.
It is a genius idea. Cos everyone (i mean everyone ; Zev/Justin, Ron/Chris, Gary/Mallory etc.) have either said "the cowboys are intimidating" or "it's the cowboys. Pretty sure they would catch up". But i think this kinda strategy is only thought by the ppl from survivor. But it would b a more likely thing IF
1) Route info from pitstop says > Careful, W-TURN ahead! As teams would b in the train, they might have ample time to actually socialize and discuss strategy w/ each other.
2) 2 teams arrived at the w-turn & the idea just came to them and tada.. cowboys u-turned.
I just hope that the roadblock would be an easy task for the cowboys but a hard task for the other teams haha!
Just like the dinosaur puzzle in china.
