So....this a KOR leg? And the Pitstop in Argentina could be NEL?  Or what??

Neither Legs can be KOR or NEL, because there's 5 Teams left, and there's only 10 Legs, so unless Leg 9 is a Double Elimination, I can't see any more KOR or NEL's.  ???

What caps show that they arrive at night? I think that teams arrive in Dubrovnik at night (stone carrying) and the leg continued into the day (either like the Lisbon Leg from this season or similar to the penultimate leg in Prague from TAR15).

They arrive at the MAT at night, Alena has the location above. ^^

And we believe that the leg continues...in ARGENTINA! Daytime car shots...

And what is interesting is that the Palace and the Sveti Ivan are only 5 minutes distance walking.

Cap 23 seems to be the back door of the Dubrovnik Cathedral:

Awesome job, Alen! So...if Dubr St John's Fortress is not a nighttime pitstop, then maybe the Leg does start at night and continue thru the day just like Bookworm said?

All these daytime shots apparently NOT in Dubrovnik but in diff clothes in Argentina have me confused.   :iok

Two separate legs, they're just showing shots from both legs since they'll air on the same night. No more room left for NELs or KORs, these are the last two legs before finale!
I see you watching me watching you :)

Need to be on the lookout for a speedbump this leg. These are the only two shots we have of Ash/Jarrod in Croatia during the day.. notice the guy in the first cap tying a bow tie. Maybe watch a demo and then Jarrod attempting it on Ash?




 

About this task; something I found doing some quick research:

Celebrating historical ties in Dubrovnik

By KIERAN MEEKE
Kieran Meeke –

Celebrating historical ties in Dubrovnik

Like many of you, I lament the loss of the cravat. Not quite wearing a tie, not quite a slob, you have the best of both worlds: casual while being elegant. But did you know a tie is a cravat – ‘tie’ merely referring to the fact the cravat is knotted at the collar? And ‘cravat’ is a corruption of the word Croat, Croatian mercenaries are the ones to thank for introducing to the rest of Europe in the 16th century the fashion of men wearing a piece of lace about their necks.

Well, I did not know these things – until I came to Dubrovnik, where it’s quite a big deal. In fact, every October they have a Day of the Tie when they celebrate the iconic neckwear and decorate several prominent statues with their own large-scale versions.

Cap 45 is here; note that this is where the kayak people sign up the tourists, so the racers must be heading down to the beach.

If you walk in the same direction than Ashleig & Jarrod - but not taking the stairs as them -, you end on a balcony from where you can see St. Lawrence Fortress. I guess that's the place they're heading to.

Daniel & Ryan start at 7:51am.

Fly to DUBROVNIK, CROATIA! :hoot: :hoot:

Once there, teams will find their next clue at ? Gate.

Ok. Just a spec Racer because I haven't seen the episode yet, but could it be the Pile Gate?

It could have been - if memory serves me, it definitely started with a P, so that must surely rule out a lot of possibilities :lol: But I was typing the live update at the time and didn't catch it (and they didn't write "Proceed To: _____" at the bottom of the screen, so I can't be sure exactly. :/

Close. It was the "Ploča Gate", the eastern entrance to Dubrovnic Old Town.
