3 stooges (US Top Gear) in Colorado

anyone see the latest episode of the US top Gear??
by the looks of the leaves its mid-late sept.??
Seems the 3 stooges take on a couple of roads around Ouray while in minivans and the roads are snow covered at the higher elavations.
Some thing tells me they won't stop the stunts till one of the 3 dies.

I don't watch it. I like Top Gear UK. Easily my favorite show.
Top Gear USA -ripoff, not funny. (Kind of like American Idol spawning 25 copies, none as good as the original.)
I also do not have cable(or satellite), so I can only get off a stream. Street fire dot com will show Top gear the same day as the cable does.

I saw it the other night but I don't recall that they ever said exactly where they were...maybe I missed it. I was surprised they were able to get as far as they did in their minivans.

Not a big fan of the US Top Gear ripoff but I try to catch it when they're doing off-road stuff...mostly just to see how stupid they get when they leave pavement! They're all like a bunch of teenagers that think offroading is only about how fast you can break your rig.

The opening scene is in the city park in Ouray.
The first trip in the vans was up mineral point a little ways. Those two scenes I know well. I think the drop off point for the animals was maybe in ridgeway or something.
I think but I'm not sure that thier trip over the contential divide was possibly Stony pass??

I'll punch each of them in the left gonad if I ever meet them.

A bunch or irresponsible a-holes. Ripping around off trail, packing their cars full of horse crap in Texas somewhere dropping crap in front of motorcycles, etc, etc. My list goes on and on.

I actually like the show. I find it entertaining and they do get to do some cool stuff. I wish I had their jobs, haha

You support these acts??

I do watch the cooking channel. Cupcake wars shows a higher level of responsibility than anyone on that show.

Yeah, they were back. The name of the place escapes me right now - the area around the too-frequently-photographed mine building along a creek? Someone help me out here...

Edited to add:
This one:


I wonder if the first part of that was intentionally set up as a failure for the F-350. As I recall, he switched over to CNG while still running gas. This leads me to think there was still gas in the tank that could have extended the pickup's range that last 100 yards to beat the VW...if the show wanted it to win, at least. Having nearly run dry on a dual-tank GMC pickup while stationed in Korea, his truck wasn't exhibiting (or at least they didn't show) symptoms indicating fuel starvation from the primary tank.
