I really hope that they go westward this season, and have Cape Town last before they go to USA.

I also think that Madrid is up this time, can`t believe that they only have done Barcelona there as a regular leg in season 10.

Someone's already posted this, and this isn't even a huge prediction to begin with.

Teams are probably going to fly out of LAX.

My prediction:

This will only be a 3 continent race (North America, Europe, Asia) because...
They just visited 3 legs in South America
They have been to Africa in each of the past two seasons and 4 of the past 5.
RFFers predict that WRP is saving Oceania for TAR22 (It's warmer then)

I predict that there will be another North American country besides USA. I know everyone wants to see Canada or Mexico.
Spain will be revisited.
China will be revisited.

Mexico is growing more dangerous by the day. There are travel warnings and constant bad reports of the drug cartels. I doubt they will risk a trip to that country.

And if you remember what happened to TAROz 2 in Canada it seems unlikely as well :lol:

I agree on the possibility of a 3 continent race for the reasons you said. And we will definitely see China again.

I predict that we'll be seeing Spain, Finland and China, and maybe a Central Asian country.

Jimmer25,
I like your logic on why South America and Africa will not be included. However, I differ on Oceania (Australia and/or New Zealand) because I do not think winter is harsh enough to keep World Race Productions from visiting in AR21.

I visited Sydney, Auckland and Rotorua last July. The high temperatures in the Sydney area were about 70 degrees F. The high temperatures in New Zealand were low 60s for the high. For the low in Rotorua it got down to 41 degrees in the evening. 

Only on the South Island of New Zealand and Tasmania does it apparently get really cold.

TAR has only visited Oceania once during April to July which was the New Zealand leg in Season 13.

Me thinks more Olympic/Sport Cities, like Bejijing, Doha, Vancouver, and maybe a revisit to Hungary.

My prediction
First Leg in Vancouver
then to Australia -> Asia -> Europe -> USA.
Can we get some white belts in here this is horrible

Qatar is hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022
Also, the Sync or Swim detour in Beijing occurred after the Summer Olympics, so I anticipate London in TAR22.

I think London will be visited in TAR22 after the Summer Olympics because the Beijing Sync or Swim detour also occurred after its respective Olympics. So, I anticipate London/England can be ruled out.

lol its been a long day  :lol:

However, we have to consider that if Qatar is visited that no racers have been to Israel or of the Jewish faith.

Bertram has always been fond of Olympic locations. I wouldn't be surprised at London either.

Qatar also hosted the Asian Games in 2006 which is an olympic-like sporting event.

I think these countries are due for a revisit (after two seasons of Africa they might skip it this season)
-North America-
Mexico (despite Travel Warnings, there are safe places like Cancun)
Canada (Vancouver or Montreal)
Costa Rica (Panama was revisted, why not Costa Rica)
-South America-
Brazil (They need to visit the inland cities like Manaus, Brasilia, or Belo Horizonte)
Peru (They been to Cusco on TAR7 but failed to visit Machu Pichu, which was nearby)
Bolivia (Lake Titicaca or Santa Cruz)
-Europe-
Iceland (Since TAR6 I like to see a leg in the capital city of Reykjavik)
Scotland (Loch Ness or Edinburgh)
France (French Riviera cities of Nice/Cannes or Lyon)
Spain (Madrid or Valencia)
Portugal (Lisbon again)
Greece (despite the economic crisis there, the Greek Islands like Crete, Santorini, or Paro)
Finland (a whole leg with a pit stop in Helsinki or Finnish Lapland)
Turkey (Izmir or Anatyla)
-Asia-
China (Hainan Island, Guangzhou, Macau, Xian, or Sichuan)
Philippines (The safety of Palawan Province or Laoag City)
Indonesia (A leg in Jakarta or Bali)
Thailand (Enough of Bangkok and Phuket, how about some Chiang Mai and the north)
Vietnam (Central Vietnam since TAR3)
Russia/Siberia (Irkutsk/Lake Baikal or Vladivostok)
Malaysia (Kota Kinabalu or Kuching)
-Oceania-
New Zealand (Wellington or Queenstown)
Australia (The true Outback like Alice Springs, Ayers Rock, or return to Coober Pedy)

Indeed he is. They visited Greece in season 9 after the Olympics. And they had Olympic themed sports in one side of the detour. So UK will probably be visited in TAR22.

I think Africa will be visited. Northern Africa.

Jimmer25,

I will take your word for it without checking. However I think there's some relevant information here:
4 visits to Australia in 20 seasons - 2-Sydney, Adelaide, 4-Brisbane, Mooloolaba, Cairns, 9-Perth, Freemantle, Darwin, 18-Sydney, Broken Hill
Note that only Adelaide would pose the smallest risk of winter temperatures of all those places.

3 visits to New Zealand - 2-Auckland, Queenstown, 5-Auckland, Rotorua, 13-Auckland, Tauranga
Note that only Queenstown would pose a significant risk of winter temperatures

So, why not Australia and/or new Zealand? The fact that World Race Productions has according to your data only done the above twice in winter should be no impediment.

I suspect North Africa is out for another season or two until the political situation there fully stabilizes. TAR's typically been far more conservative about that kind of thing than No Reservations and the like. (Which isn't necessarily a bad policy what with the NR crew getting evacuated by US Marines at one point when they found themselves effectively in a war zone.)

Close by, how about Malta or Cyprus? Both relatively safe and would seem fresh for this version of the show.

It might be good to see a return to Sri Lanka since the troubles there seem to have finally stabilized. I also wouldn't mind to see some island-hopping in Oceana. Plan it early enough in the game where you can sync up flights effectively, and you could do some sort of Tahiti-Fiji-Samoa route before exiting through Australia or New Zealand.

The first leg in Vancouver was a rather chaotic mess. The fact that they were filming Tar Australia that day was plastered all over the front page of the biggest Vancouver newspaper. There were numerous sightings and from what we could tell, at least one site was abandoned because of crowds of people in the area. The public also spoiled the location of the next leg in Banff by taking pictures of the signup board for bus rides there and posting it online. Because they traveled by bus, that next leg was over 24 hours later and could have been chaotic as well. There were a lot of sightings in the Banff area as well, but I think it was less of a headache because the fact they were in Banff wasn't as publicly announced. We sat on the information about banff until after the leg was run.

By the way, as TAR Australia 2 is just about to start airing, those legs haven't been shown yet.

I predict in no certain order:

(DEPART) Washington DC
Ireland
Denmark
Spain
Poland (Krakow)
Turkey
(northern) China (Beijing or Shanghai)
Laos/Vietnam
Philippines (guessing Luzon, specifically Ilocos Norte)
ARRIVE San Francisco

I'll even make a bold prediction of where they'll go in SF - Portrero Hill (find the most crookedest street - na uh - not Lombard), a task around the SF Zoo, and then final run somewhere in the Presidio.
