From an interview in the 'hil in the news' thread.

I am about to embark on the biggest physical and mental challenge of my life and trust me I will be fueled by my No Opportunity Wasted Energy Bar. In July I will leave Paris to travel around France on a 1928 bicycle. I will average 150 miles a day for 22 days to honor the Australasian team who rode the Tour de France.  Proceeds from my film will go to MS. This is hands down the hardest thing I have attempted to do in my life so far!!!

If Phil is planning to ride around France in July then that must mean that TAR filming is complete by then. Which means it should start filming soon...

Maybe, maybe not. We had the season 12 Anchorage finale heavily spoiled. :tup:

Portland, Oregon will make a nice starting city. No spoilers for sure.

Portland doesn't have much in nonstop international flights, the only nonstop internationals other than Canada are Tokyo and Amsterdam on Delta Airlines.  Portland is better off as a finish line city anyway.  Seattle has a better chance as a starting line city due to SeaTac Airport has more international service to Asia and Europe.
TAR23 Filming could start sometime either this weekend or afterwards.

Tour de France is from June 29 to July 21. I don't really forsee Phil competing with that. So I would anticipate his ride to take place after July 21.

After TAR 23 filiming, Phil will need some recovery time, to be in shape to do his ride. How many days to you think that will take?

I wouldn't be surprised if they started slightly earlier than usual considering Season 22 started slightly earlier than usual.

I have a feeling they might start in a Texas city (most likely Houston) or Detroit because they also provide airline services internationally. Houston's intercontinental airport is known for traveling to all continents except Antarctica (obviously :res: ) I suggest keeping a watchdog in Houston because I see it as a starting line location and not a finish line location. It hasn't even been featured.

I think the starting line might be in Miami. In S20 when the went to South American, IIRC, the flew from LA to Miami and then on their way, so maybe production can skip the domestic flight in the US and start in Miami. Miami also has many flights to Europe as well and we are due for the first leg to be in Europe.

Not being rude, but Miami is about as :groan: as a starting line location in L.A. County again. We've all seen Los Angeles or Miami featured in some way or another including airport arrivals for nearly every season now since TAR10.

It's like exercising in the same routine week by week. I kind of want something fresh in TAR23 since we all know viewership has been shrinking over the years and I want a route that will "pop" like the famous U.S. to Japan leg in TAR15 or TAR10's double elimination (1/2 point and full meter).

I have a gut feeling spec that WRP may start in a new state, but if it's wrong, good luck, because 23 is usually the number people forget in counting.

I would love a Texas start. Historic Galveston. Sam Houston Statue in Walker county. Battle Ship Texas. Any for a Houston start.
San Antonio for the Riverwalk (La Villita) or the Alamo start. Would have to likely fly to Mexico though.
No I do not live in Texas.

LOLL

But seriously I think we are due for an East Coast start.

S11 = Miami
5 straight in La
S17 = Boston
5 straight in La
S23 = Non La start?

Detroit as a finish city would make sense. They're one of the few significant US international airports TAR hasn't used yet, you get a lot of daylight filming hours this time of year, and there are a good number of nice places in the area where they could film tasks in relative privacy.

Plus the headquarters of one of the race's sponsors. ;)

LA has been in every season since All-Stars, and I just don't see S23 will be any different. S17 was the exception, only because they wanted use LA as the finish line city for a change.

I predict the starting line will be in the Inland Empire, if they were to consider starting outside of the LA area. A starting line task, then drive Ford Fusions to LAX.

Yeah... Unless the powers that be are really adventurous, the start point's going to be in LA.

Cool data, but with almost 50 people to travel (teams, cameramen, soundmen, Phil...) it is just that WRP searches for the cheapest way to do things. If LAX is easier to connect their flight, do not doubt about it.

Um, what's wrong with an LA start? We only get to see it for the first 15 mins of the first episode anyway.  :) And what I care more about is a non LA finish .

I was just going to post this. :lol:

I'd be worried that a non-LA start would mean an LA Finish Line, like TAR17.

The only way I would see a non-LA start, is if the entire first leg would take place in that city, just like in TAR Asia. But we all know that will never happen in the US edition, as we would react the same way as Marion Paolo did during the middle of *that* season.  :)

Same here. While I still don't like the LA starts, but have learned to accept it, since we don't really see much of it, since it's mainly about the start of a new race.

Besides, when they did start in the Boston area in S17, we did not really get to see much of it either. Kind of a waste, since it was the race's first ever visit to New England. But hopefully, it will be visited again in the final leg of a future season.

I believe that Phil's grueling bike ride around France means that AR23 will be run and filmed before July.

I remember it starting memorial day weekend last year, so I would expect around the same time frame this year.
