100% agree Ned - every call he is so composed and obviously thinking clearly. I've no doubt that he is having the time of his life and today especially was an opportunity to push it perhaps too far by wanting to test yourself against the big guys.....but Lyndon is just sooooooo cool about it all. Just living in the moment, taking it all in for what it is and just letting things happen by riding his own race.

It's really, really impressive to watch.

Lyndon, hands down you are the story of Dakar this year. Classy performance all the way.

Thanks, Dox!


I can't imagine telling such a composed tale as Lyndon does, let alone in the midst of the experience he's having. Fantastic!

Thanks for letting us Inside the Helmet, Lyndon.

Another great call. I have to tell you, I look forward to these every day. I have enjoyed Pyndon's posts for a long time, and really enjoy hearing him talk about his ups and downs in the dakar.

Pay Pal sent!

[edit]

The Dakar pics are really really nice, but we need one that beats this one!

Another great call.

I have just posted this in the front pages section of pics pics pics

I think a nice tribute to have a Pyndon day on the front page photo rotation when he finishes. No if about it he is going all the way.

Please can someone explain the difference in colour of the way points, why are the early ones red then they change to buff colour? I have asked around and nobody can tell me.

I think that's when they 'open', which means that riders have reached that wp according to the iritrack.

I've still got the video saved. Might have to go back and take a better one.
