Well done.

The man's fast on anything, check out his on-board going up the Mountain at the IOM. Very quick

Simply fantastic.

Thank you Lyndon, for providing a thrilling and enthralling vicarious experience for desk bound dreamers!

I hope you can pause and relish this grand moment with your father today. What a wonderful and amazing thing to be able to share.

Thrilled for you, indeed.

Lyndon Calling


Dakar 2013 route is announced, at last a cure for boredom
Wondering whether this will be the last for Robbie Gordon
Mostly though the real question is Chaleco or Despres?
“What ‘bout this fella Poskitt?”, “Never heard of him” they say
“Well here is his website, he’s a first timer don’t you know”
“Well I don’t know about his riding but he sure markets like a pro”
After 15 minutes talking, they show interest it would seem
And everyone goes crazy once you tell them Dakar is his dream!

The story starts in April, when Pyndon’s plan first gets a mention
“The goal is just to get to the finish” seems to be the intention
KTM 450 Rally shall be the chosen steed
Oh shit this is serious, our appetites we begin to feed
Sponsors, a dealership on board and support packages to be had
A mechanic decision – fantastic news – he’ll be doing this with his Dad!!!!
Broken foot aside the prep work went without a hitch
But my wife is lonely and in need of some attention as I become an F5 bitch

The first real stage of Dakar on day 2 was long and sandy
Pyn keeping it steady and sensible and looking really handy
Day 3 saw many come to grief on the long and challenging stage
Our boy keeps his head down and is enjoying every day
In f5hose land we watch his progress and look forward to the picture show
Then out of nowhere BAM – there’s a SWEET ASS SUPER SLO-MO!!!!!!!
Along comes the family as Mum and sister now are here
Joining in the F5 chorus shouting, screaming and full of cheer

Say that again - a top 10 finish, that can’t be, I’m no fool
Better listen once again to the call in with PackMule
9th place on a Dakar stage! Could he? Did he? No way!
“In the biggest pond full of the biggest sharks, your proving yourself day after day”
A historic moment and overwhelmed we rush to our television
Rallyradio call in shows rewards if you have persistency of vision
A high speed crash, a snapped fork yoke – from far we hear DG’s cries
But this is Pyndon, see what he’ll do with J-B Weld and Zipties

The penultimate stage is upon us and he wrestles and fights the quads
Best not get too emotional here we mustn’t piss off any mod’s
Now is not the time to open the bubbly, stay calm and remain sober
This is the Dakar don’t forget and it aint over till it’s over!
Mornings here and all our nerves are caught up in a muddle
I’m on my 8th cup of coffee and all I want is a cuddle
WP1, then 2 and 3….. what Pyn and PynDad must be feeling
Go on my son, GO ON MY SON!!! we can start believing!

Lets not forget a Dakar attempt is financially difficult to manage
So maybe stick your hand in your pocket and buy a support package!
For Pyndon’s efforts this year have just blown us all away
He has realised a dream since he was a boy – and he’s done it his own way
My Missus wants me to sell the bike and buy a brand new car
But after these two weeks of wonder I want to do the Dakar
He’s in! He’s done it! Sadly the end of the show
But at last we can let all of our tears and emotions go

Goodbye and thank you RallyRadio, PynDad and F5’rs
And all the people working for the international cell phone providers
For having Pyndon call in has made this Dakar one hell of a show
I’ve still no idea who won it, was it Despres or Chaleco?
THIS was the story of the Dakar for me, the most intriguing there is no doubt
PYNDON HAS FOOKIN DONE IT!!!! We now can all shout
And thanks to all you inmates out there, unturning every stone
For updates throughout the day whilst he was out there on his own
But I guess that’s actually an assumption, for he rode hard and stayed strong
Because we were right there riding with him and pushing him along



Well done Pyndon – you deserve it more than anyone
