    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. :lol3

    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. :clap 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.:evil

    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??? :D

    Hmmm, I thought I'd got away with that. I dropped my finishers medal and it went rolling off down the ramp :baldy

    My dad had to chase after it, not that's got gravel rash along with the bike and me :D

    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.

    Hey ADv'ers, you have to take the time to listen to the last Rallyraidio call in its full 32 minutes. Nate was at his very finest, drawing out the color we crave. Pyn was great as usual; a very good story teller. But his Dad, Robin, was awesome for me. He told a big story.


    Nate; 'How is the Dakar for your dad, Robin? '
    Pyn; 'Well, he's sitting here next to me. Why not ask him? Pull up a chair, Dad...'

    Robins responses were music to me.

    Thanks Nate, Lyndon and Robin.

    A little late, but here are a few shots of someone you might recognise from the tail end of the Eurosport interview feed from the last stage that I found.
