On the eve of the last day, we'll all be bawling in the Pickup household. Keep it steady and see you at the finish line!

I've got a little something lined up when you get home

Oh it's been snowing too!

That was a great media commentary and very different from the rest. He liked Lyndon's story and the proof is he defined his fellow Brit by his ears! Ha Ha Ha...

Lyndon's are great ears at Dakar these days.

Hope Pyndon calls/called-in but by now he's probably thinking about sleep.
PackMule is traveling and Flood may be catching Z's so the call may not get uploaded for awhile, if it is there.

Carlton retweeted the link to our RallyRAIDio interview last night. He must have listened to it after the "big show" on Eurosport. Carlton is a PynFan!!


We're up in the mountains with the fam, but I've hijacked someones wifi connection so I could log in and upload Pyn's call tonight.


Stand by!

He cleared the stage @ 1509L. 204 km liaison. Call it 1800L by the time he hits the biv. Service, roadbook, couple of meals, shower. Earliest 2100L that gets done. He's been great with always calling in for a couple of minutes, bet he did before he racked out (2300L there now).

But with Nate on a fambly sabbatical, and Flood living on the wrong side of the ocean...yeah, expect something around 0100 est.


Edit: Hope your wife don't catch you, Nate.

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 don't think Pyndad had to deal with it. WP suspension had a factory support truck there, and they repaired Lyndon's forks for him. How's that for customer service?!

Lyndon's Stage 13 Call

An upbeat Lyndon calls in on the Penultimate day of the rally. After his miraculous (and rally-saving) mechanical repair yesterday, he started well down the field today and had to contend with a lot of dust, passing 40 bikes and quads through the course of the stage. One day to go, and Lyndon knows it's not over until the finishers medal (which is satisfyingly heavy, as Ned Suesse informed us last year) is in his hand. Keep it steady, Lyndon, and thanks for the ride!

Yeah heard that in Pyndon's great call-in.
WP had their rep on the line there, so I'm sure they fixed it pronto.

Pyn sounds a bit tired (who wouldn't be!) but still his calm collected self. I'm sure he will finish in style.

Thanks Nate for jacking some WiFi and getting this to us!

Pyn to Santiago!!

Edit: Hope your wife don't catch you, Nate.

She brought me a beer while I was posting the call.

This is her (only) favorite part of the Dakar. The End.

To be fair, she was passing Flood's RallyRAIDio tweets/FB posts on to me as we were driving in the car, before we lost service.


Sorry to have missed the day, but I really can't complain. I've skied a lot of awesome places in my time, but none of them have been as rewarding as cruising greens and blues with PackKid #1. Third time on skis, and she's ripping it (we shouldn't be surprised, she started riding a bike w/o training wheels at 2 1/2 yrs old).


I imagine Lyndon and PynDad would approve of my absence:



Bring it home, Lyndon!!
