I was at jury duty in Downtown Los Angeles this morning. at around 945am I saw a team of two african american males followed by a camera guy and a fourth person running down the street. they stopped by this guy playing jazz music and were reading something. this was all in front of the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

i walked past them and then come running past me about 10 seconds later and go right into a parking area. i watch them as it was quite a lot of activity and notice the red and yellow arrow pointing to the parking area where their cars were waiting.

i snapped a pic of the arrow and the parking area.

Hi and welcome!!!  :keeta:

I think what you saw should be for TAR France. They were filming in California yesterday and have a team of two black guys.

You can see a lot more in this following thread (and also share your information):

If the first pic was taken in NYC, is consistent with the info we had from June 16th about a task involving pizza delivery.  And the presence of the camera crew leads to believe that Lexi & Trey are actually performing the task as one of the F3, instead of the pics we already had of Nadiya & Natalie and Abby & Ryan - spotted with no camera crews - doing the same thing, with the general consensus that this two teams were decoys.

The pic is from NYC. They're carrying pizzas from "Lombardi's Pizza".

The bike shop also gives us another location for the final leg we didn't have that day.

According to Google Maps, there's a two blocks distance between Lombardi's Pizza and Bicycle Habitat by foot.

And here's a pic from Bicycle Habitat:

The cast announcement today has shaken loose another sighting. From Facebook earlier today:

So glad the word is out. We met Josh and Brent on the Talgo Night Train to Paris in June when they were in the middle of racing and filming. Caroline and I will be watching on the 30th and cheering them on. Spoiler alert, when we met them there were four teams left!


I don't know if this is something we already knew or not, but it appears that the Beekman Boys are in the final four. They are getting one of the largest reactions on Twitter, so that will probably help ratings.  :tup: The fact that the Facebook poster doesn't mention other teams may be bad news for the Beekman Boys though.

Also, I'm not sure we ever nailed down which trains were used in France, so this may help with that.

In the background of the Beekman's pic, we can see part of a banner with the word museum.  I made a little research, an I found this:

Peach, here's another one pic from the same building in Shangai; a similar but lower point of view.

It's the Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower in the Pudong district.  And behind is the Shangai Tower (maybe Reta can identify the other building I have remarked).

In the first floor of the Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower, at the Pudong district, is the Shangai Municipal History Museum.  Maybe this is the place were the pic was taken.

(And the firts letter, that we can't see entirely, looks like a "y").

 :lol:  yet more Shanghai Maglev Museum pix   :tup:


BTW, from the looks of the blog pix, the Maglev Museum may have been closed that day, or at least that entrance was closed.  I guess the racer was just getting on/off the maglev train at the station above.
