An opportunity to travel to Copenhagen came up
Since CBS has listed Denmark as one of the visited countries for TAR19 I decided to do some good old fashioned detective work!
I checked countless locations in and around Copenhagen to find out if the Race had come through. On the first day, September 3rd, I took a 3.5 hour tour with Mike's
Bikes to get a feel for the city. It's a great tour. And if the girl from Dublin ever reads this please contact me!
Her bike broke down before I could get a name
Back to the detective work: Starting with what we know (not the actual time order of investigation)Hillerød It's to a castle I will take you!
The local press had already reported seeing Amazing Race filming at Frederiksborg Slot in Hillerød so I took the 25 minute metro ride out there and started asking around about the filming that happened there on July 4th. I found out that many Danes are currently watching TAR18 on their cable channel (the latest episode had Luke drinking all the tea). Here is what I found out about TAR19:
Teams arrived the morning of July 4th. They drove their own cars past the usual parking areas and came right up to the castle. They went running up two levels of spiral stairs and went to the Great Hall. Here is a video of doing that:http://www.youtube.com/v/qg6QMfZwq-Q?version=3&hl
I could not make sense of the arrival order. The two teams that stood out were Zac & Laurence and Marcus & Amani. The rest of the teams became a big blur.
The task in the Great Hall involved wearing medieval clothes and doing dance routines. One team member waited and watched while the other one did the task. So we know this was the Roadblock. Nobody could figure out what the helicopter was looking at.
