BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.

I’ll confirm answers in the afternoon so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance to guess.

This week’s brain teaser was shared by Patrick Berry, of Jasper, AL who submitted this to NPR’s Sunday Puzzle. It’s tricky but you can do it.

This week’s brain teaser: There is a seven letter Northern European city that if you remove its third letter, you’ll get a two-word phrase describing what you must do to win a race. If instead you remove the fourth letter, you’ll get a two-word phrase describing what you can’t do to win a race. What’s the city?
