Maybe I'm going crazy, but in a previous season, did a team get penalized for not having all their clues when they checked in? Was this because they lost one? or because they just skipped one?

On TAR US, there is no penalty for losing clues. Teams must physically pick up and read each clue in order to check in. Tara & Wil lost one of their clues in the final leg and received no penalty. On TAR Vietnam, there is a penalty for losing clues.
Right, but i swear i have a memory of a US TAR team getting penalized for losing (or at the very least missing) a clue.
Freddy & Kendra in Norway iirc

Anyhoo, I was reading up on Rachel (:torche) and I read that there was an off screen airport fight or some sort of secret scene in TAR20 Leg 3 (Paraguay  :2hearts:) What was that about?? Does anyone have any link  of that?
This one?

TAR 19 was a pretty mentally challenging season I feel like. With hidden "clueboxes" and cryptic clues, I'm amazed these teams managed.

In retrospect TAR 23 had a lot of memorable Roadblocks, mainly because teams were always neck-and-neck in completing them. For instance:

Leg 2: Shoe-shining in Chile
Leg 5: Polish pastry apartments
Leg 6: Vienna Boy's Choir
Leg 9: the infamous angklung/octave task in Indonesia
Leg 10: hard-boiled eggs in Indonesia :lol:
Leg 11: the epic robot building task in Japan

I think based on this, I like the Detour > Roadblock > Pit Stop sequence best (obviously with some Route Info's/extra tasks thrown in there).

Wasn't Freddy the one who completely exploded at the rest of the teams at the rail museum? :groan:

Yea Freddy got hit. It wasn't really anybody's fault. it looked like it went up hit it's max height and came back down hard. Two people (maybe Gus i can't remember) put their hands up so it kinda looked like it was pulled down but i don't think it was.
It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.

So Im rewatching Season 5. In leg 9, Chip and Kim take a taxi to the airport instead of driving but dont get penalized. How come?

After the motorbike tasks on TARC and TARV this week (and also remembering the finale of TARPH1), has TARUS ever had a task involving a motorbike of any sort? Other than TAR31's Road Block of course. Like more on an actual track or out on regular roads, not in a parking lot as well. I feel like TARUS would be afraid to do such tasks?

TAR 23 Leg 10 had teams ride a motorbike to the mountains. It was a Roadblock, though.

Oh! Just looked back and TAR18 was more of a moped, I guess. Certainly not as much power as a motorcycle and the teams stayed in the bike lanes on well-paved roads the entire time.
And in TAR23, I checked and saw the teams didn't drive themselves, but were driven by a local. (Like TARA5, Leg 2 with the Grab bikes)

I guess they're a little different from the dirtbikes/motocross bikes on a course on TARC and TARPH1.  And somehow different from the motorcycles(?) that they always ride on TAR Vietnam? Certainly a little bit more risk with the types of bikes used on TARC, TARPH, TARV (other franchise too?) than what's been use on TARUS?
