The six remaining teams traveled north from Rome, where the detour presented the choice of riding or building a donkey. The Double U-Turn played a prominent role in this leg, strengthening the bonds between some teams and elevating the conflicts between others. The roadblock required one team member to hand-copy a manuscript page, pre-Gutenberg style. At the Piazza del Duomo, the Pit Stop for this leg, the only thing missing was a formal declaration of war as the field was reduced to five teams.
