In ten or twenty years they'll be saying.

"Wow, another Englishman made it to the top 10 in a stage, last was Lyndon Poskitt in 2013"

Wow just frickin WOW!!! what an amazing result.

I know there is a front page pic of Pyndon in the dessert on his way to Timbuktu but I think this great result deserves a special pic for the front page don't you?

I think the best barometer int he finish results is David Casteau, who has been top five when no one got lost - for Pyn to be right there with him is a dead ringer that he was genuinely flying, for sure. Stoked!

+9 ! What a fantastic stage result!

MCN / Michael Guy has a nice article up from yesterday's super stage, featuring Lyndon & his father photographed with deserved wide smiles. :) Also contains comments from other Brit riders, as well. A good read!

Stage eight: Poskitt secures first British top ten for a generation

But this is the absolute deepest pool of talent for cross country racing there is. These aren't just people who are good at it, they are the people who are best in the world at going a long distance across unknown terrain in a short time. Sure, there are some everyday Joe's at the back of the pack, but they struggle even to get through a stage. The middle of the pack is made up of people who live and breathe riding motorcycles- look at Patrick Beaule, who is no average rider by any means! I imagine anyone who has ridden with Pat will be happy to inform you he doesn't lounge around anywhere, and I'm positive he hasn't been.

So, people can say something like "he lucked into it" and of course they will be, in some measured way, correct. But we make our own luck in life, and there are about 150 other folks that had a similar chance today. Eight of them capitalized on that chance better than Lyndon.

In the biggest pond full of the biggest sharks, Lyndon has been proving himself more than capable day after day. And today, when the stars aligned, he was positioned to take advantage AND HE DID. No one, not even the ASO, can strip him of what we know happened.

F#ckin' Brilliant result! Legendary!

Now, to make sure it doesn't go to his head, and he keeps racing the exact same race he has been!
Very well said Ned

This result is awesome !

I have it recorded on Sky+ but no idea how to transfer it on the interweb ? Can anyone help ? No point in putting it on youtube as ASO will claim copyright and pull it immediately.

I was just thinking it's not often a bike proudly carrying an ADV sticker gets a top 10 Dakar finish
