Completed the Special, on the final transit to the biv.
Wow, just wow!
What an amazing adventure, and what a wonderful spirit that young man has.
He will be just fine with the challenges ahead, as being a Brit he will be sure to have that 'Dunkirk spirit'.
Go Lyndon, GO!!!!!
Pyndon's thru the stage!
Way to go man! Congrats to Tolmum and the pit crew aka PynDad and the whole PynFam!
It looks like Pyn saw a lot of JohnnyC today, and speaking of Americans, sorry but history compels me to say this...
An American has finished 1st in a Dakar Rally stage and a LONG stage at that! In fact he was first at EVERY checkpoint!
Way to go Kurt Caselli !
But I have to pause for a moment of silence for the seriousness of this event. Our thoughts go out to those connected with the French rider who died today on the road section.
And to me it was especially emotional to hear about yesterday's fatalities and injuries for the support crew on the R2R team. For those who don't know, the Race2Recover.com which is a group of competitors consisting of wounded British soldiers and civilian support staff, including those with missing limbs and many having served multiple tours in the name of our freedom to be able to do things like ride around chasing our dreams in the desert.
Kinda puts things in perspective.
Ok back to Pyndon, thank you so much (and PackMule ) for including us in your efforts. It is so nice to hear the voice and visualize the event as he tells the story of the day! ... and I LOVED LOVED LOVED that slow mo video with the ADV sticker peeking out under his braking toe hehehe..
So far Pyndon's ride feels like Neduro's in that he put in the planning and now is executing THE PLAN, being smart and riding HIS ride, not succumbing to pressures of the moment and making a dumb mistake.
Go Pyndon Go !
So sad to hear today's news it really brings it home to you, my thought are with all those concerned.
Just watched the fantastic footage from Michael Guy and MCN and would like to say a big thank you, truly amazing.
Keep up the good work Lyndon
While you have him on the phone, could you get him to respond to my question on his "My KTM 950 Story".......?
Tee hee. Thanks Lyndon, for all you have done for Advrider and us 950 riders.
Looks like you found it... Sorry, I was a little late to the game with my posts...
GO PYN GO!!!
And Go Lyndon!!
Just got this from @chase_the_race on twitter.
At the end of the first special.
What does the "p" mean as part of his number?
It's actually SP, if you look closely. Stands for Super Production, which basically means a bike that has non-stock modifications made to it.
Call from Lyndon uploading now.
Wondered what those letters meant
Just on my way home from another nightshift I'll get my fix when I get home
Think he's got blistered hands? Just wondered looking at the tape on his fingers.
Pyndon's call from the Bikers' Bivouac. Sorry for the delay, tending to family duties.
Lyndon calls in after the first of two marathon stages (bikes spend the night in their own bivouac, no assistance crews for the duration of two consecutive days). It was a rough day for him, both physically/health, and mechanically on the bike, which luckily can be considered his first setbacks of the rally. It was also an emotional day, as a moto competitor was killed on the liaison to the start of the special. Godspeed, Thomas Bourgin.

Thanks again PM
Hopefully a better day tomorrow Pyn! And let's hope the freakin' rain stops!!
All that blue and the big smile under the helmet reminds me of Jonah.
Great call-in from Pynd. Hearing the daily struggles of the rally as it happens really adds a new dimension of understanding to what the riders go through.
Thanks again, Nate.
PM - again thank you for all your efforts.
Interesting to hear the weather is that bad - hopefully it clears up for tomorrow. GO PYN!!!
Thanks PM and Pyndon for the call-in!
Sounds like a tough day with altitude and weather. Great that Pyndon fixed his electrical problem so fast.
Hopefully he gets a decent nights sleep and a good stage tomorrow.
Just got in from a night shift at work and had to get my Pyndon update fix before bed! Hope things are a bit more enjoyable during todays stage, stay warm, stay safe and stay fast Lyndon!
