Back in the Saddle is the season premiere of The Amazing Race: All-Stars.
Teams must find one of several of the UCLA Bruin Marching Band members with the Chinese symbols for Guangzhou, 广州, on their shako's badge, matching the badges displayed on the shakos of the band conductors, and bring the band member back to the starting line to be confirmed by Phil Keoghan. Once a team brought a band member with the correct shako, Phil will give them a set of tickets for one of two flights to Guangzhou, China.
Upon arrival at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, teams must travel by taxi or metro to Jiangnan Avenue North, and search for one of three wedding boutiques that have their next clue. Each store has a limited number of clues, forcing teams to travel to the others if they run out.
Teams must travel by metro to Canton Tower, where teams must select one of the bubble cars of the Ferris wheel located at the top of the tower and search for their clue, which will be revealed when the door to the car closed, forcing the teams to wait for the car to make a full trip around the building before they are allowed to exit and proceed. Even number cars held clues, while odd number cars told teams to try again.
Teams must travel by taxi to Haixinsha Grandstand to find their next clue.
The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to dress in a special costume and perform 5 aerial somersaults while suspended 300 feet in the air by wires attached to the stadium's towers to receive their next clue.
