Welcome madam, it's an honor to have you here!

I'm sure you know your son is very highly thought of among this bunch of riders.
Good job you did there.

Can someone tell me what the CH's (in a blue circle) means on the profile for today's stage on the Dakar page, I get the rest of it and now they've thrown me

Anna-Marie, CH-CH are start and end of the neutralization zone. The racing special has two parts today, Km 0 -> Km 229 is the first; then the timing clocks stop, the riders refuel and ride on the road for 97 km (probably avoiding a nature reserve zone or mining operations).
Then, at Km 326 (the 2nd blue CH), they are let off on the timed special again, racing the final 128 Km.

Clear as mud?

What he said! ^^^

Basically, it's a liason in the middle of the timed section, where "CH" means "Checkpoint" - each rider has to check in to each of these and is probably timed between the two, though this doesn't count as part of the result - there will be an average speed check between them and they'll probably receive a penalty if caught speeding.... (you can't get away from it nowadays! )

Can I also say a big "ey-up" to Toldmum - it's great that you're on here and having followed Pyn's exploits all year (yep, I like most on here have the t-shirt!) it's great to see that this really is a family affair and you're all really behind him!
It's great to see all of the comments as you all know him better than us, so do please keep them coming!

The radio reports are great and really give an insight as to what is going on that we don't see - good work Packmule!

Greetings from the Isle of Wight

Great to have you on board. It must be tough missing both of your boys, but they are doing an amazing job out there.

Like someone else said this place is a big family if there is anything we can do to help that family we will do.

All the best

Thank you guys, It all becomes clear now. I didn't realise that section didn't count in the timings but I was aware of the speeding thing (there really is no getting away from it hey!!)

Another good day for Lyndon yesterday, thanks for keeping the call in's coming Nate It's good to hear his voice on a morning. Hope he got some good rest for a long day today.

GO Lyndon
