HOly steep dunes :eek1
Far out. That is harsh. Especially as he'd clearly been pushing his way home despite earlier issues. Tough bloke no matter what. Let's hope he's all tickety-boo and heals up quick.
Jeez...crap luck! Hope he is ok ...
Shit Don, thats no way to finish a stage.
Best wishes and a slow clap .
fingers crossed that it sounds worth than it is....
Live from the Dakar bivouac, having an awesome dinner with the spanish team Pedrega that is assisting 3 venezuelan riders and 1 colombian. They are helping me so much and i want to thank them all for letting me be part of the team!!! Pedrega brought a nice good ham so here we are, the bivouac is really magic!!! Ps. I want to thank also Simon Pavey for giving me some of his used (they are practically new) mousse for the next stages!!!

Think I developed a lisp reading that.
WTF? Is that the leg of a donkey the police were on yesterday??
now try read it with an german accent
That's a bummer about Don!! Super guy
I was really hoping that this was his year to finish! Just curious was he acting as Pavey's WC or were they just riding together?
On a day that saw many competitors come to grief on the long and challenging stage, it's clear that Lyndon is having a blast and enjoying the ride. Listen in, you'll be grinning ear to ear by the end, too. Thanks for bringing us along for the ride, Lyndon! Keep it Pyn'd!

As far as I know, Don contracted in to the team structure. They definitely have not been riding together on stage.
Anyone have tomorrows start time?
Dakar Race report- Johnny Campbell stage 3. Pisco to Nazca.
Well things did not go as planned today. Early in the stage the bike developed a hesitation that seemed to be fuel system related. I wasn't sure so I did an examination on the bike and everything seemed to be in order. Pizzolito stopped but he could do nothing for me so I sent him on to follow Helder without me. The race continued without me as I would have to wait for a my extremely fast, bright orange, Support vehicle, piloted by none other than the fastest 4-wheel driver in the desert, Robby Gordon and his Navigator Kellon Walsh. They kindly dropped off a care package that would get me back going. After 20 or so more minutes of repair I was back underway.
But instead of racing with 2- wheel vehicles I found my self smack dab in the middle of the Garbage truck race!!
And man let me tell you, these guys are the gnarliest drivers out there. I couldn't believe what I saw happening right before my eyes. These guys drive trucks, BIG trucks over the softest, steepest dunes that makes me pucker on a bike! The course turned south to a quick beach run, where yes I popped a wheelie for my homies. :) Everything was all good till about 40km from the finish where the bike started acting up again. I nursed it in the rest of the way. I was sure glad to have made it to the bivouac where my HRC crew took quickly to the bike to get it dialed in for the next stage. Stage 4 will be 720km almost 500 miles!! Yikes!
Got go finish my road book!
Adios for now,
