No evidence for either scenario than the press release. :lol:

#SPEC teams pick up the Detour clue at Bibi Heybat Mosque, which would make sense for the distance to the oil spa

Do we have picture proof of a hay task?

This:

"TWO TEAMS SEE HOW THEY STACK UP AFTER HITTING THE HAY," Can mean a team might have slept in or something.

This has to be one of the more cryptic clues we have gotten from a press release. I am wondering why so many teams choose the nasty oil task. Maybe the hay thing (if it is a Detour) is a lot farther to drive to so everyone stays together like the speedo detour from TAR19.
Physics alone is not enough.

Those who forget history are sure to repeat it.

Just speculating, but I'd  have to agree with Aussie with regards to 'hitting the hay' referring to sleeping, or perhaps over-sleeping. That was the first impression I got when I read the press release, but anything's possible. :duno:

I can possibly see ONE team oversleeping...but TWO? :duno:

And remember the second detour option should be fairly close to the first, which limits things as well.

True - two teams over-sleeping is highly improbable... a very minor possibility... :(

Hopefully there will be a promo shown which reveals the second Detour! :please:

It wouldn't be the first time.  Remember Peggy and Claire in TAR3 leg 3 or Chad and Stephanie in TAR17 leg 7.

It was actually me who suggested the sleeping in possibility.  :lol: :lol:

Also, does anyone know if hay is a slang term for oil or fire?

At first I thought the headlamps were for reading clues, but they appear to be searching the grounds for something.

Oh good idea!


So here is our press release again.


First part:
TWO TEAMS SEE HOW THEY STACK UP AFTER HITTING THE HAY, AND RACERS SPONGE UP THE LOCALS

I think they have given us our detours. :lol:

And part 3 is phrased differently, which seems to refer to a real hay stacking??  You would not go to sleep (hit the hay) to see how well you stack up....

Two Teams hit the hay to see how well they stack up and Racers break out the sponges for an oily detour

So much for a hay Detour.

Men covered in oil or a car full of apples?! Where do they come up with stuff like this this season? :lol:

Well now we know what both detours are I think this is more probable.

My guess is that this is the order of decreasing probability:

1. a haystack task involving real haystacks
2. needle in a haystack
3. "hitting the hay" (sleeping)
4. oversleeping
