Found an interesting article where James and Abba explain what the Speed Bump involved and they also mention that they were in Russia for six days before the passport situation was resolved. The article/blog post can be found here: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/amazing-race-james-abba-elimination-392013

They weren't so lucky as Zev and Justin. They get back the passport next day on the embassy.

Even Toni and Dallas were able to recover their passports at the U.S. Consulate in Moscow (which actually has lost-found passports) the next morning; however, for them, the final teams and Phil had already departed for the final leg.

One thing seems to be clear now. When a team loses or misplaces a passport, the decision of when to eliminate them is based on when a team will need to have their passports to travel, and they need to be prepared to show production that they have them. They are given a chance to recover the passport, but if the next route marker point that has teams required to show their passports (i.e., buying tickets or customs leaving a country), then they'll be eliminated. This appears to be how one can view all of the passport issues of these past 8 seasons consistently (including the start of TAR 19 when a team was able to recover a missing passport before teams departed by LAX.)

This episode just aired in Australia last night, nice job channel 7 ><
anyway, could this leg be the leg with the most amount of teams yet the fewest inter-team interactions? the only teams that saw each other were the chippendales working with trey and lexi for the whole leg, and trey and lexi briefly seeing the twins get out of their taxi

Also is it just me or is Sokolniki park (or wherever the pitstop was) featured also in season 13?

It was. Sokolniki park was the park where the detour in the second Moscow leg started (the lady with the shetland pony).
