Mind the time in the snoo*er game. This interview is about 20min, and you probably won't be able to stop once you start listening.
Thanks, PM. Great leading questions, when it was your turn to talk.

Lyndon's attitude is certainly top-notch What an experience.

I am guessing about 15mins until France 2 Le Bivouac judging by current program and their schedule.

Potted history of the Chinese Jincheng team:

2008 - Lined up for the aborted Lisbon-Dakar on XR250's - one badged "NEW MOTOR" and the other something else ( can't recall ), the bikes were as rough as guts, very poorly prepared.

2009 - Same 2 XR250's from Lisbon, but badged "JINCHENG" and better prepared, I don't think either finished and the Czech guy on the monkey bike rounded them up on at last one day. Just one support guy in a rented ute, several times later into the bivouac than both riders.

2010 - 2 Chinese riders on kitted Yamaha WR450's, nicely presented in red livery - badged as JINCHENG and entered as JC450's. ( I wasn't there personally in 2010 )

2011 - Same 2 WR450's as 2010, plus a western rider on a KTM530 - all in red Jincheng livery. The WR450's had all Yamaha logos removed but oddly, the KTM still had KTM logo on the clutch cover ( later in the rally anyway - maybe after an engine swap ? ).

2012 - I wasn't there, but only 2 bikes from memory, maybe one Yamaha & one KTM ?

2013 - One Chinese & one westerner on KTM450 Rallye's apparently ( I'm stuck in Oz ).

So why do they do it ? As with anything in China, you can never get a straight answer. I have met with Jincheng several times for an unrelated project and they are very proud of their Dakar team - when i asked them why they use Yamahas instead of developing something themselves, you just get a blank stare - like "Who told him we use Yamaha's...". So who knows, maybe they will come up with something of their own, maybe it will look not a lot unlike a certain Austrian Rallye bike ??

You can see the progression though, with typical Chinese logic - enter some XR250's, good reliable bikes - didn't finish.
Enter some Yamaha's, good reliable & fast bikes - finsihed at back end of field. Enter a KTM 530 with a western rider -
finsihed mid field. Enter the bike the won the Dakar the previous year.......

Today we crossed back over the Andes mountains in to Chile for the final stages. It was 30 degrees at 6am, headed over a 15,500' pass! I was frozen, it was pure torture. I stopped to change gloves and nearly collapsed due to lack of oxygen and an ailing body. Then as we approached the start of the stage after 5 hours of Liaison, I almost feel asleep while riding. At the start of the stage I felt kinda weak and not very confident. I cruised for a bit and had to stop and pick up a downed Spaniard. (Second time this race, different
rider. He was ok only wrist soreness. I got him patched up with a few cable ties on the bike and off we went).
This stage had 75% dunes. Super soft but really big fast sand valleys with minimum rocks. You could hold it wide open for miles. My ribs did a little better today proof that the prayer is working! I have been able to keep going in desperation mode. I'm am ready to see the finish in Santiago, Chile,
this coming Saturday. 2 stages left. Tomorrow Copiapo to La Serena, back to the Pacific Ocean! Yeah! Thank you everyone for your prayers I feel them every bump!
Love,
Johnny
Never knew that much about JC other than super successful multi Baja1000 winner, but this Dakar has shown he's a great guy and has a great attitude!
