TORONTO, Aug. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - It was a heart-breaking homecoming to Canada for Cormac and Nicole, as their hopes of staying in the race sank with the Yukon River rushing below. The son and mother team from Winnipeg were the fourth team eliminated from the race, just one leg before the Race would turn up in their hometown.
Cormac and Nicole fell far behind the pack when Nicole struggled at the biathlon Roadblock, taking a whopping 22 attempts to shoot all five targets. "I've always taught Cormac never to give up, and I could not give up now," said Nicole at the Pit Stop, fighting back tears. "Never gave up," added Cormac. "She did it."

Episode 5 Recap
From the Pit Start in Macau, China, eight teams travelled over 11,000 kilometres back home to Canada to the mighty Yukon. Once there, teams made their way to Sky High Ranch and chose from the sled dog challenge or the camping site Detours. From the Detours, teams made their way to the gruelling Roadblock, where they had to complete a Snow Bike Biathlon. After cycling a one kilometre circuit, the participant had to hit all five targets with only five rifle rounds. If a target is missed, they had to cycle the course and try again until all five targets were hit. From the Roadblock, teams made their way to a portage challenge and canoed their way down the Yukon River to the Pit Stop.
Alain and Audrey became the first team on Season 2 other than Natalie and Meaghan to win a leg, earning a trip to any of the Sun destinations that Air Canada rouge flies, and $3,000 on their Scotiabank Gold American Express card.
