I'm sure I read on here somewhere that Lyndad was helping out driving one of the support trucks during the day? They must all be pretty busy (which makes Lyndon's regular RallyRaidio call ins even more special). It would be very interesting to hear about dad's impressions of the Dakar though.

Yes, Lyndad as Lyndon's mechanic is driving one of the support truck with the other driver, Ivan. The communication between them is excellent, they really make a great team, all three. I'm sure Lyndad would like to share his impressions, he was very excited on 5th January!

I know what it feels like to be under pressure to get the bike ready for the last grid call. It is furious! I try to be polite, but I can't really chat. Maybe a good time is in between while Lyndon is racing?

Just a thought from Boston.
I pinged Ned, asked him to pass the wishes along for PynDad to maybe join the rest day call in.

Welcome!

The F5 crew has rolled out the red carpet for you! It has been fantastic following Lyndon his year. Even better sharing this experience with his family .

Hello Toldlady! I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting to you a while ago when I came over to pick some brake lines up from your house.

You must be mighty proud of Lyndon, he's doing a great job and we're all routing for him. Thanks for hooking up it'd be great to hear from yourself as to how you feel during the days racing? I'm constantly checking twitter, Facebook and on here and I'm as giddy as a kipper and nervous as a......... Nervous thing with bad nerves!

I must admit though as the days have passed and he's making all the checkpoints I'm not as bad. God knows what you must be like.

He does sound cool and calm on the radio call ins though, which always brings a grin to my face.

DG

As with Ned's family last year, you are most welcome.

If there is anything we can do, or questions you were wondering about, please ask. We'll be more than happy to help out.

You may not realize, but your family just got a whole lot bigger...

Hi Lyndon's Mum!

Your boy's doing us all proud, you must be really chuffed to see him doing so well.

Welcome to ADV Toldlady. As the others have said you must be so proud of Lyndon, what an amazing job he's doing. Last year we heard from Ned's mum and Sam Sunderland's mum on here so it's nice to have you with us all cheering Pyndon on!:c lap

Hello Toldlady - We are going to want observations from you too. There are pitbox mom's out here anxious for your every word. And I am not kidding!

It's a hard job being a motorcycle racer's parent.
