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, a GREAT wrap up!)...
I think I know the Secret Sauce and his name is ....
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!
Thank you PackMule and Pyndon for the time to let us all in on your journey. To the whole PynFam and PynCrew...
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...
Awesome!!! No more, no less!!!!
Thanks for another great call and wonderful to hear your dad's perspective. It has been great riding along with you through the Dakar. I hope you can make it to the western part of the US for an ADV event and give a presentation.
Again thanks to you, your dad, Nate, your mum and your sis for sharing your experience here. ADV is all about us doing what we love, and sharing it with others so they can enjoy our experiences, and we can enjoy others. You have all done an amazing job at helping those of us who will never get to experience the Dakar first hand see it through your eyes.
Safe travels to you all and good luck getting all your stuff back home. My guess is the logistics is a real nightmare.
A dakar tatoo, cool. Here is my dog, her name is Dakar. She is glad the rally is over I am sure as she keeps hearing her name on the TV and getting confused.
What a monumental achievement!!!
So, here I was fighting my PDD (Post Dakar Depression) and then I hear that Lyndon is pondering to have a go at the Romaniacs!
Let me put it this way - I'm looking forward to lay my hands on the next awesome support package! =)
Great job Lyndon! I loved following your adventure and was cheering you on whenever I saw a photo or glimpse of you on the tv.
Just listened to the wrap up call, another great call, thanks to all who worked to bring these fab interviews to us.
Pyndon, this has been really quite awe inspiring, what an extraordinary achievement. We look forward to more of the same in the future.
We loved the pre Dakar presentation that you gave to the Oxford TRF group and look forward to setting up a post Dakar one!
Well done Lyndon! I'm very very impressed. Looking forward to your talk at the West Yorks. TRF in March.
Thumbs up to your dad and Ivan too.
Thanks for lighting up the dark January days in the grim north.
Congratulations Lyndon. Well done on finishing your first Dakar in an amazing 46th place, a hard earned 20 minutes ahead of your nearest rival! Great work too from your Dad and Support Crew, your family, sponsors and fans.
I got to see you on the podium like I said I would. Dad and Ivan too. A bit far away as you can see so my little camera struggled on max zoom but that's as close as the public could get for that view.
I see you looking down with some concern. Have you just spotted a fuel leak or were you chasing something???
Most excellent! If you ever need a chef as part of the team give me a shout! I'll be seeing you soon Pyn!
Colorado is a great location for a presentation. And riding is easily arranged.
Great job Lyndon!
Hmmm, I thought I'd got away with that. I dropped my finishers medal and it went rolling off down the ramp
My dad had to chase after it, not that's got gravel rash along with the bike and me
Thanks everyone, it's going to take me a while to catch up and make any significant posts but I'll get around to it I promise.
Thanks for all your offers of beer too but as most of my closest riding friends will know I don't drink much. I love to eat though ;-)
Catch ya soon folks.
You dropped your finisher's medal??!! How perfect!
Well done Lyndon!! Not only did you finish, you finished well!! I'm very proud to have been a supporter!
