    Blatantly stolen from Facebook. If he looks this happy after 730km there will be no stopping him! :D

    So the mighty Pyndon is human then? Sounds a little tired tonight but then you'd expect that and he just keeps putting in those solid rides. Go Pyndon! :clap:clap:clap:clap:clap:clap:clap:clap

    How can you not like that guy? Sounds like he is a little worn down. The next couple of days will be tough, but we know he will come through fine. I hope some one puts up footage of the hillclimb he was speaking of, sounds brutal. I think maybe some of the tiredness we heard may have actually been sadness in the news of the R2R accident, and the sobering effect of coming up on the unconscious rider yesterday.

    A good point well presented, you're probably right.

    Just picked up these quotes from the main f5 thread - all 'real time' comments when the Pyn slow mo footage was screened ! Shared it here as I suspect Pyn may read this after the Dakar and otherwise it would all be lost in the monster thread !

    The reactions say a lot of what the guys here think of Pyn :clap:clap:clap:clap:clap:clap:clap:clap:clap

    In case you had not heard the R2R boys who were involved in the accident have non life threatening injuries. Unfortunately 2 locals were killed in the incident.
    I'd be great full if somebody can let Pyn know as he has been told it was the lads from the support truck who had died.
    My thoughts are with the friends and families of all those involved.

    We should add, for reference, that this footage was shown on France4's live afternoon show, a Francais. Folks from around the world, probably none of whom are native French speakers, were tuned in to this through the magic of F5, following a guy who's let us ride on his shoulders from application, through acceptance and build, to participation.

    How cool is that?!?

    Another great day, well done. :clap
    Sounds a little tired and down but to be expected with the combination of the day and the sad news, still his usual chirpy giggles when he talks about his riding experiences which is a true sign he is still enjoying it.......and with THAT smile at the end of the day what more can be said.....

    Apart from GO PYN GO!!!
