I was watching the 2nd promo (promo 1A) and noticed something.
12

Kent/Vyxin was in the train right?

Anyways just a thought. I think all these "ganging up against the cowboys" are just discussions teams made when they saw "DOUBLE-U-TURN AHEAD" after they have departed from the pitstop. To me it seems like the producers are just trying to keep us on the edge of the seat by using the cowboys to put fear in us cowboys fan. To me it's extremely hard to assume that anyone has been u-turned.. even though most likely the cowboys are u-turned haha.

I can't wait! 3 more days! :D
"Im sorry to tell you that you have been eliminated from the race" is the most horrible thing to hear on TAR haha :)

Good spotting!
They both look relatively happy too, maybe they finished fast.

omg yeah, that is true. I didnt notice that >.< Im sure they're one of the first few to finish the roadblock.

But still, they might screw up in the detour haha! :) And end up getting u-turned instead  :snicker:
(haha. gosh i feel like a crazy cowboy fan who just dont want them to get eliminated at all, finding every single excuse to try to prove that they're safe)

I speculate that Justin does the Roadblock, which would bring him to a count of five. :tup:
i disagree for 2 reasons 1. i saw zev on the moped(assuming moped is rb) and 2. if it was justin he would only be able to do 1 last road block. either at the finale in which case zev has to do legs 10 and 11.

I disagree... we have seen in previous races since Season 16, teams can do 7 roadblocks...

Even if Justin does this roadblock, he can still do one more roadblock before the finale (with Zev doing one roadblock in either Leg 10 or 11) without hitting the roadblock count of 6...

It has already been mentioned on this thread that the goths are riding the tram to Sargans to catch a train to Zermatt. So it is definitely after the roadblock.  ;)

Is the Moped dealer near the gas station?  Since we suspect the speedbump has something to do with gas, maybe they have to fill a certain amount of Moped tanks, including their own, before they are allowed to continue...?  :duno:

I predict that the prize for this leg will be Mopeds or Scooters.  ;)

My guts says Cowboys, Zev/Justin and Gallory are fine.  Kent/Vxysin, Kisha/Jen might be in some trouble.  As for the Trotters, why doesn't anyone think they would U-Turn the Cowboys?  I think they would.  They see the Cowboys and Zev/Justin as their biggest competition.  If they can slow them down or eliminate them, I think they'd do it in a heartbeat!

[/quote] this would make sense because peach was like luggage tags is that familiar to anyone, however i dont see why they would be u-turned becasue you would want to keep the weaker teams in race wouldnt you?

Actually a lot of people have speculated that the Globetrotters U-Turn the cowboys, a few pages back. I think it's likely as well. My gut also says that Zev/Justin and Gallory are fine. They've gotten a pretty big edit despite the fact that they don't have Jet/Cord, Flight Time/Big Easy, and Kent/Vyxsin-size fan bases. I also feel like with all of the promo emphasis on the cowboys, they should be okay too, but it's a little iffy as this is a bad leg to be U-Turned on (since the Detour comes after the Roadblock; not much catch-up time here).

Looking at Amazing Line map that they had in the preview, this should be the route map with the Schaanwald being the start point, Balzers being the end point and the gas station in the middle.  It's exactly 9.5 km to the gas station from the start and exactly 9.5 km from the gas station to Balzers.  


Route With Gas Station (B) Location (Slightly bigger)

I couldn't find any bike shops near the gas station (there might be some there obviously, just couldn't find them.  There is one near Balzers and one in Triesenberg.  Both are after the gas station.

---

It's possible that they've to stop at the gas station (80% sure it is the right one) and make sure they're on the right path?  So they only have to do half the route over instead of the entire route?

We know from the press release that:

ONE Team struggles to consume a local delicacy (FONDUE) while others become acquainted with Swiss hospitality (Luggage Delivery??)


But one team may ALSO struggle on the BELLBOY/luggage task.


Reading this again closely...  Could this mean that the SAME team that stuggles with the food detour ALSO struggles at the luggage task?   In other words, could it be that the cowboys are the one's that lose the luggage tags, then switch detours, struggle mightily with the food task, only to then discover that they are U-turned???  If so, seems that would almost certainly spell their doom.    What would happen in that case?  Would they be forced to go back and search for the luggage tags until they find them, or would they have to start the entire task all over again??? 

Hoping this is NOT true...

I read it to mean that others struggle with the luggage while only ONE team has trouble with the fondue. That doesn't mean that that is what it means though.  :lol:

I sure hope so..  I guess it's the word "ALSO" in upper case that leads me to think it might be the same team...  

But then again, I suppose that if one team struggles at both, it could also be Zev and Justin, since they appear to be struggling at the food task.

Or maybe I am just overthinking again!   :lol:

Well, the press release did not tell us that someone struggled on the luggage so she is telling us that.

Just to be clear:

Is not a press release but is a peach clue.  :angel

It could also be read as one team may struggle on the BELLBOY/luggage task.

I think I said ONE TEAM. No team was specified. 


Maybe I need to go out of the clue business:wall:
