During the Pit Stop, teams were transported from the Indra Musikclub, in Hamburg, Germany to Château des Monthairons in Les Monthairons, France before the start of the leg.

Teams must drive themselves to Sainte-Menehould and find Boulangerie Defontaine, where teams must buy a baguette, inside which they would find their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to La Main de Massiges in Massiges, where they would find their next clue.

At La Main de Massiges, Jordan & Jeff would receive their clue for their Speed Bump. Jordan & Jeff must help reinforce a trench wall using a series of branches. Their work must be up to the soldier's satisfaction before they are allowed to continue.

Choice A: In the Trenches
Teams must dress up as World War I-era American soldiers, known as doughboys, then travel through trenches to a telegraph, where they must decipher a message in Morse code - "We will prevail. Vive la France." - and then present their deciphered message to the French sergeant, who will send their message back to headquarters via carrier pigeon, and then hand them their next clue.

None of the teams chose this task.


Choice B: Under Fire
Teams must dress up as World War I-era American soldiers, known as doughboys, then crawl under barbed wire 100 feet to receive a message – "The war is over. Vive la liberté." – from a soldier in a foxhole. They must then crawl back under the barbed wire to present the message to the sergeant, who will send their message back to headquarters via carrier pigeon, and then hand them their next clue.

All teams chose this task.

Teams must make their way on foot south down the road at La Main de Massiges to find their next clue.

At La Main de Massiges, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, without revealing their identity. Louie & Michael used the U-Turn on Joe & Heidi. Since Joe & Heidi completed the Under Fire Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the In the Trenches Detour before continuing.

Teams must make their way on foot to the Church of Massiges, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must wear traditional French bicycling gear and ride four miles on antique bicycles to Eglise Saint-Étienne de Wargemoulin in Wargemoulin-Hurlus to check in.
For coming in first place, Louie & Michael won two 55" HD TVs.
