Ned, chime in as well.
Good question John, I had the same thoughts when listening to the call last night. I'm guessing that it's probably hard for a working guy to train close to the reality of Dakar. Lyndon rides a lot but might never have done that many miles in that many days under that stress with that little rest.

I'm interested in hearing him expound on the physical and how he might train different should he do it again too.
