"Fast Forwards - The fast forwards will be a 3 team match with a 20 round limit. It will be a random map with the same settings as the rest of the tournament. It will be offered to the teams in the order they start that leg in. As soon as three teams accept it the match will begin. If three teams don’t accept there will not be a fast forward for that leg. Participating teams will still get all the times for that leg added to their total time, but if they win the Fast Forward they will get 3 hours knocked off their time. The other 2 teams will get 1 hour added to their time. ** The rounds from the actual fast forward game will NOT be added to your times. ** "
I interpret this as that this game will be in ADDITION to the normal leg games. However it could be INSTEAD of ALL the leg races for these three teams, which seems unfair, or REPLACES the three leg races that would otherwise occur. While conducting the poll I have cancelled the leg races between the three teams (where I can) which may need to be reinstated.

A Fast Forward is a task that, once completed, allows the team that completes it to bypass all remaining tasks in the leg and proceed directly to the Pit Stop. The Fast Forward clue is given with another task clue (usually a Roadblock or Detour) and is a separate task from the others. Only one team may complete a Fast Forward in any given leg, and a team may only complete one Fast Forward in the entire Race. The exception to this rule is in seasons wherein the Fast Forward is offered in conjunction with the Intersection, in which case a team may win the Fast Forward both as an individual team and as a team working with another as part of the Intersection instructions. Teams that win the Fast Forward are not guaranteed a first-place finish for that leg and still face elimination if they arrive at the Pit Stop last. Multiple teams may undertake Fast Forward tasks, but only the first team to complete the task gets credit.

You can confirm by checking games created in the first fast forward round, there should only be 1 trips game and no others
I didn't save the pm from green, but pretty sure he had stated if the fast forward game was not agreed to by all three top teams then the tourney just advanced to the next round.
