He certainly is!

Lyndon's been riding his rally bike in the UK Rally series this year (and kicking our arses as usual) nothing like Dakar conditions but let's just say if we have another "mudgate" my money is on Lyndon

GO PYNDON

Smooth is fast.

Unless I'm riding, when smooth is really slow.

Yeah! Remember Ryedale Rally, that was insane, I don't expect the conditions to be anything like that but I feel riding in the UK has prepared me really well technically. It's the heat and length of stages that are likely to be the challenge.....bring it on, this is Dakar!

Thanks everyone for your comments. I hope to work on some posts over the next few days but I said that three weeks ago and time has just disappeared! We'll see how it goes.

T minus not many days
