Having driven from Banff to Vancouver before, I would say 11-12 hours is probably the fastest a car could make the trip. The highways will also be very snowy, so there could have been many delays on the way there as well.

This is the Fairmont Lake Louise. Definitely one of the top attractions in all of Canada.

Since they are leaving at 7 AM and 8 AM this morning (Tuesday) for a 9-10 hour bus ride to Banff, they won't get there before sunset tonight and I expect an HOO. Therefore, most of the activity will likely be on Wednesday.

FYI, the signup board was in front of the Westin Bayshore hotel.

I'm guessing Calgary would be a good exit point.

You bet. The only other major airports within about 500 miles from Banff are Vancouver and Edmonton and Calgary International Airport is only about 80 miles.

There are Fairmont Hotels both in Banff Springs (Fairmont Banff Springs) and in Calgary (Fairmont Palliser).

In looking at ARAus2 from an overview perspective, I believe it is about to finish in North America and head from Calgary airport back to Australia or to New Zealand for the finish. In considering the options, the most likely in my opinion is an east coast city in Australia that is not Sydney (that was the start of the race). That most likely means Brisbane. The alternative is Auckland, New Zealand . The most direct and straightforward flight connections to either one are in Los Angeles. I expect teams to do this:

to Brisbane - AC568 YYC LAX 0800 1010  connecting with  QA16 LAX BNE 2350 0730+2

to Auckland - AC568 YYC LAX 0800 1010  connecting with  NZ1 LAX AKL 2115 0715+2  or with NZ5 LAX AKL 2200 0750+2

Just in case, I am also offering another non-East-coastal Australian city, Melbourne:
AC568 YYC LAX 0800 1010  connecting with  V 12 LAX MEL 2230 0915+2  or  QA94 2330 1005+2

So soon? There were six teams in Vancouver, assuming one got eliminated there and one in Lake Louse we still have four teams. I would expect them to eliminate one more team before heading back to Australia. But they could of course do that on New Zealand.

And there are definitely five spaces on the sign-up board for the Banff buses. I'd bet this is what's happening:

Leg 1 - Sydney to Manila to Legazpi (11 down to 10)
Leg 2 - Legazpi to Baguio (10 down to 9)
Leg 3 - Baguio to Delhi (NEL)
Leg 4 - Delhi to Dubai (9 down to 8)
Leg 5 - Dubai to Istanbul (8 down to 7)
Leg 6 - Istanbul to Gelibolu (NEL)
Leg 7 - Gelibolu to Paris (7 down to 6)
Leg 8 - Paris to Havana (NEL)
Leg 9 - Havana to Vancouver (6 down to 5)
Leg 10 - Vancouver to Banff (5 down to 4)
Leg 11 - Banff to ???, likely Los Angeles or some other western US city (4 down to 3)
Leg 12 - ??? to Honolulu to ???, likely Brisbane/Gold Coast area (finale)

Looks like we've still got two legs left.

I don't think we're going to have a finale with 4 (maybe 5) teams still racing...

I think we have at least one more leg, if not two, or even three (if Calgary turned out to be an NEL) before the finale

I would say either Western South America (Ecuador, Peru), Japan, or China would be more likely as our next location(s)

Here you go:



FULL photo credit to Jeffrey Simpson.

Based on spacing and the font, it looks like the final five teams are "Shane & Andrew", "Paul & Steve", "Grace & Josh", "Joanne & Michelle", and "Emilia & Luke". The last one could be "Lucas", but the others are pretty much 100% certain.

Yes. :cmas16

If it was used as a location, I suspect Seven will air that episode as close to ANZAC day as possible to bring in more ratings.

There could be but three legs in the same country would be unprecedented (save for the Family Edition).
