Hi, Guys!

Just to say thank you for all your help and support, and all the time you put in to follow his race. With a full time job, I don't really have time to take care of all the updates regarding Lyndon's progress, the website, facebook accounts and the support packages. I really really appreciate it and I would never have been able to deal with everything without your help. And I know Lyndon is feeling the same. Thank you soooo much.
Dani

Strong ride!

My guess, without having spoken to him, is that the terrain was tougher (and that agreed with him), he has the hang of navigation and the rest of the Rally habits, and the result just came together without necessarily indicating that he pushed harder or took more risk.

Can't wait for the next call-in!

I'm loving the one with the helicopter in the background over the dune
Aha, glad to hear it - I actually made that suggestion (way back on page 35) as I found this out the hard way in 2011, having paid up-front and crashed out in spectacular style, I only gained a handful of photos for my €850...

As we've seen already, paint your bike in striking colours, and the photographers will take your picture anyway!

Go Pyn!

Is it just me or does Pyn's bike look immaculate and clean every day in the photos compared to other bikes ? Or are the pics taken first thing before it gets dusty

Just had a FANTASTIC call with Pyn. Listeners might even recognize another familiar voice on the call...
