Just ran across this image of Dakar coverage on CNN. WAY TO GO PYNDON!!!
A blue KTM? That's just confusing.
Well, I am partial to the orange. , but the blue anniversary Dakar model is probably the one thing in the world I'd trade it for.
Glad we (when I say 'we', I mean 'the Kriega lads back in the UK') could play a small part in helping put him through that kind of self-imposed heaven & hell ride.
That's exactly how I felt too, but when a good deal on the '12 blue adventure came my way, I took the bait
That's an awesome picture, good work Pyndon!
A "dust to glory" ride so far !
This is Pyndon's first try at the Dakar, he's doing it as a privateer, and he's in 72nd, just a few spots behind Pavey. I think this is Pavey's seventh Dakar. Pyndon's the man!
I just ran across this pic on CNN and was about to post it.
The website I was just reading said he was 52nd overall. (bloody great effort full stop )
Holy cow, your right! You have to look at the overall standings, and I was looking at the daily standings. Through Stage 12 Pyndon is 52nd overall, and Simon Pavey ("Long Way Down" and "Race to Dakar" trainer fame) is 61st overall. Amazing. And here I felt "tough" because I rode to work this morning while it was still below freezing.
Have been following Lyndon via his facebook page and the UK KTMforum...really impressed and a little in awe!
Having said that have had my bike picked up by Simon Pavey in the Welsh Hills on one of his training days and though he was a top bloke for an Aussie
On stage 8 he finished in 9th position.
A couple days later he had his 'big off' at 60mph.
Yesterday, the bottom of his left fork split open. Trailside repair with some JBweld and tiewraps. Came back from last at WP1 to 87nd at the finishline.
I don't care if and how Despres wins. Pyndon is the man.
The dude is doing what allot of us are dreaming off, and he's doing pretty decent aswell.
Great to see Lyndon sticking it out and doin so well. I also have to raise a glass to my fellow Donegal man Stan Watt.
etc etc etc...
Pyn it to win it! That's a winning smile if ever there was one!
Ha, amazing what an ADVRider can do eh
Not bad. Not bad at all. Congratulations on the finish. Now you can check that off your bucket list.
