Looks like Lyndon might be having the ride of his life. I'm sure the course suits his riding style, and he seems to be right in the zone at mid 30's - not influenced by front runners, and just riding his own ride!


So happy for him!

Looking at the tracker it doesn't make much sense. Late to DSS maybe, tracker broken on his bike maybe..or he has stopped before wp4

Why are so many people having trouble? Isn't today mostly forest roads?

It may be, I just remember hearing that the bike coarse was too tight for the trucks so they would be on a different route.

I think they can't register a new carb'd bike in Europe after 2015 or so? So that will force their hand.

Plenty of FI bikes have made it thru just fine (including Safariberg's ingeniously developed Husabergs, which I haven't heard of a single FI issue with).

What amazes me is that it's taken this long for motorcycle FI to start working reasonably well- come on, it's only been 50 years we've had pretty flawless FI on cars? This shouldn't even be something worth talking about... but of course "shouldn't" and "isn't" are rarely synonymous in this or any other context.
