And there was a leg in Melbourne which was cut as well.
STRONGLY suspected...but could not be confirmed. But I think it was real...
Malaysia both legs almost certainly. There was an extra funny delay after China leg 2....Also suspicious. Was China meant to be 2 legs ? Unknown.
So China>China>Malaysia> Malaysia could have been meant to be China>Philippines>Philippines>Melbourne.
We may never know for sure, sadly. I love that TAR was able to take a disaster and reschedule on such short notice, that is experience and a dedicated team at work. Major kudos for pulling it off.
BUT...I will prob always grieve for what could have been, this season would have been better. Heh, I am still grieving for the lost Tanzania leg in Season 11!!
