After a LONG DELAY...we are bringing you some more live time photos for the Mexico Leg.

At the time it seemed like too much to share live time...but we were there!

Be aware that the next segment WILL contain Finish Line info...so stop now if you want to watch tonight unspoiled.

Huge thanks to CAPER who found the clue that led us there...and to our on the ground team, and especially the all seeing MR X for two full days of live tracking for us!!

Also please remember that we did not yet know these teams by names, so they were referred to by team colors mostly. There were 5 teams racing.

found a video (introducing location as pitstop) and a pic of poster with Jon at bellasartes but thinking may be crew again due to his location during video & lack of amazing race hashtag? https://www.instagram.com/p/Bixo8KenVKS/?taken-by=xolo21

We mostly saw 4. Apparently the first team arrived to the Mat a good bit ahead of the others. At the time there was also confusion about a possible decoy team.

Team 4 FF Aqua Backpacks
Team 5 MF 1 Black/1 White Backpack
Team 6 Asian MF 1 Black Backpack
Team 7 MF Green Backpacks
Team 8 Interracial MM Black Backpacks

So please excuse any confusion!


Teams arrived in the evening. There was the usual get the camera gear thru customs delay.





Teams then went to Revolution Monument to obtain their next clue.



ONLY to be met by an Hours of OP: Elevator opens at 7AM (Handwritten Sign)

Teams went to a local Hotel and returned in the AM for the first Clue.

They lined up in their actual arrival order from the night before.

By that AM we had a pretty good idea of the probable locations, thanks to the AMAZING on the ground team!

Up the tower to get a clue:

From Monument to the Revolution's scenic elevator https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47ECHCY-clQ




Then on to Coyoacan
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Du-xIfmbZsg


ROUTE:

Monument to the Revolution elevator to Coyoacán to Central de Abasto to private  home in Condesa on Mazatlan street to Alameda Park.

Coyoacán was the face painting: Mexican Día de Muertos skulls make-up like in the film Coco

At Central de Abasto carry onion sacks and sell tacos (These two could have been Detour choices...unclear).


Then "a private home" in Condesa neighborhood. Possibly The Red Tree House ??? (based on previews this was likely the soap opera scenes)


MAP: Coming)

The team chose to not try to go to the market or the private home, so no shots from there.

I don't know if we had this, but allll the way back in leg 1, it seems the log/pole climbing challenge was a 3 part challenge, and that they only showed the first part. In a video posted on CTV exclusive's section, Courtney (from Adam/Court) is leaving Martina a cute message and we see a montage

https://www.ctv.ca/The-Amazing-Race-Canada/Video/S6E10-Exclusive-Martina-Has-Courtneys-Heart-vid1479560?cid=ctv2018_090618_community_facebook_TARCexclusiveclipMartinahasCourtneysHeart

Part 2: is similar to S3 Leg1 challenge where they had to cross the log on the water

Last minute catching upon the FINALE: (My fault for the delay)


Finale LIVE bits:

So we knew they were flying into Calgary.

(Did not know there was a task there).

Teams then traveled by helicopter to skiBANFF where it super busy day, huge crowd there for Slush day (last weekend of skiing).

We were ready early:




Production and then the clue box arrived with some racers behind:












Teams were seen heading to the spot near the stage:



We thought there was a task here at the slush pit:(Detour??)






They then headed up the mountain to do a Dog Sled TASK (be pulled behind the dogs around the track):





We THINK some teams may have done a slalom task using snow racers instead. ???

Some possible Interviews here??



They then went back to the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.

There was a clue box at Cascade Gardens





Team Dylan and Kwame spotted running by the Waldous here across the Bridge







Reported to be running right to left which would be toward Cascade and the river.



Note the Golf Course (Finish Line) was to the right however.

???

I got a bit ahead of ourselves and called the Finale as the ampitheatre. Turns out that was just a hangout for production!



Instead was here:



Credit to Windsor Sue!


Sorry I can't do screencaps right now but I did grab this. The finish line is at the Banff Springs Golf Course. The new preview on Twitter & FB pans in from above but first you can see a very distinctive sand trap behind them - it's right in the middle of the golf course.




 :cheer:HUGE THANKS TO THE WHOLE RFF DETECTIVE TEAM!! YOU ARE ALL AMAZING!!! :cheer:
