One thing we know is he is having a strong day and moving up through the pack steadily with a mid 40's pace.
It is very hard to track, I have just had to log out of the Dakar site as I have sat for the past 15mins waiting for it to update with waypoint 7 thinking please, please, please where is he then voila there he is. My heart was in my mouth. I need to move away from the computer

Keep up the great work Lyndon

Impressive stuff! Anyone else wondering what Lyndon could do in a factory effort? Would like to hear his thoughts on the pace of the front runners.

Yup - from Pyn's FB page
Thanks, I checked there before, guess it appeared after I went to bed.

Maybe when it's all over, we'll get to see a picture of it after pyndad chipped off all the metal-epoxy, I'd be interested to see how badly it was cracked where the compression holder mounts.

Agree, impressive patience to give the repair time to set, impressive skill to make back a lot of time and impressive cohones to trust the repair. Glad it worked out and he's still in the race.

I think it's the position at that waypoint, not the whole stage. But I could be wrong.

At the WP, the stage comes at the end.


I think.

He's holding his own nicely inside the top 50 overall. Having a great stage.

It's a killer ain't it? I keep refreshing the Dakar page and it's still not showing him at WP12. He'll be there soon enough though

As was said on another thread "I don't care how or whether Despres wins, Pyndon is the man"

So true - I have no idea about the leaders - all I've followed so far is Lyndon. Story of the year for me. Any MotoGP, Rally, Superbike, F1 or any other motorsport story that is to come will pale in comparison. I'm obsessed with this story and so chuffed for everyone involved.
