"Who can put up a lot of bull?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock had to take part in bull racing. They must hang onto a harness hooked up to two bulls and would have to continue holding on while the bulls dragged them through the mud course the length of a football field. If they did not let go at any point, they would receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must make their way to Beach Road and find their route marker.

Choice A: Baskets
Teams must load 10 live chickens into baskets and then attach those to a bicycle-powered wagon. They would have to pedal across town to find a farm that was encircled on a map. After delivering their 10 chickens, they would get their next clue.

Choice B: Trunks
Teams would have to load two coir bales onto an elephant and deliver them to a coir shop encircled on a map. After delivering their bales, they would get their next clue.
