Five things the Amazing Racers will encounter on the show:
A Detour is a task in 1
which teams choose between two challenges. A U-Turn forces a team to backtrack on their Detour and do the challenge that they didn’t complete.
Only one member 2
from each team can participate in the Roadblock challenge.
The Speed Bump is a 3
penalty task given to the last team to arrive at the destination in a nonelimination round.
A Fast Forward allows 4
one team to complete a task and then skip all the other challenges and go to the Pit Stop for that leg. The Express Pass is hugely worthwhile – it allows a team to skip all challenges.
The Pit Stop is the 5
final destination at the end of the leg (episode) and teams are welcomed at the Pit Stop by host Phil Keoghan.
