I think to finish the race in your first attempt is a victory of it's own. To flirt with the top 50 is amazing. To break the top 30 as a rookie is next to impossible without a dedicated factory or semi-factory team behind you. Botturi was top rookie last year in 8th IIRC, but he had a dedicated team behind him (BF) and has been competing enduros professionally for years, racing competitvely is his day job. Ditto Quinn in 2011 (top 10 rookie result)
I will be overjoyed if Pyndon finishes anywhere between 50th and 70th.
