    Just wanted to add my congratulations to Pyndon Pyndad and all the support crew. It has been a privilege to be along for the ride.

    I have a feeling this isn't the end, but the start of something that could be huge

    Fresh off the podium, we catch up with Lyndon for a wrap-up interview for his 2013 Dakar effort. Many of you have asked to hear from Lyndon's dad, Robin, who served as his mechanic for the race, and I'm happy to say that Robin joined us for this call! Grab your favorite beverage and sit back for the final details and some reflection on the past fortnight (indeed, the past year). Cheers!

    Excellent wrap-up call!!! Thanks Pyndon and PynDad! It's been really great following along and I'll enjoy using my synthetic LPR t-shirt for riding.

    Well done!!

    Pyndon, Nate's suggestion about your coming over for one of the adv events is a good one. Hope to see you then.

    :norton You said it brother! The ADV community never ceases to amaze me, and brings this big 'ol planet a little closer together...
    ... all through the shared love of feeling the "breeze between your knees", the bugs on your goggles, the sand in your teeth, and the simple "twist of the wrist"!

    So now after hearing the last RallyRaidio interview (and a most excellent one at that, :clap a GREAT wrap up!)...

    I think I know the Secret Sauce and his name is ....

    ... Robin!

    Having a Dad like that will prepare you for a life event like the Dakar in so many ways -- it is now no surprise to me how this all came about! It was an "aha moment" to hear Robin speak and the 2 of them collaborate...
    From the meticulous mindset, the dedication, the commitment, the carefulness and oh yeah all those apparent years of rally racing involvement! The chip does NOT land far off the old block!

    So to see the picture of them on the podium together.. well that just did it for me! :cry

    Thank you PackMule and Pyndon for the time to let us all in on your journey. To the whole PynFam and PynCrew...

    :clap:clap:clap Congratulations on a job well done!

    Hey Lyndon! It's not too late for yours:

    p.s. I took this pic and can only hope the "tat wearer" is proud enough of it to forgive me for posting it here... :lol3
