Pyndon's Dakar Presentation: Oxford 16th August 2012

Oxford TRF is happy to announce that Lyndon Poskitt, aka “Pyndon” to many of us, will be presenting a talk on his forthcoming entry in the 2013 Dakar race.



The talk will start at 730pm and will take place on the evening of Thursday 16th August 2012 at Oxford TRF’s usual meeting place:

The Gladiator Club, 263 Iffley Rd, Oxford, Oxfordshire OX4 1SJ

The talk will cover how Lyndon started on two wheels as a boy of 10, his teenage years competing in trials and how he tried his hand at enduro, motocross, supermoto and roadracing before deciding that adventure bike riding offered the greater appeal and challenge. Lyndon will touch on his time in the US, his entry in the Baja aboard a KTM 950SE and how this has led to him undertaking serious financial commitments in order to compete in Dakar 2013. He will also discuss the reasons behind his choice of bike and support crew.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session, here's a recent clip of Pyndon competing at Keilder Forest:

More detailed info on Lyndon can be found on his website: Lyndon Poskitt Racing

Entry is £5.00 per person, please PM me for payment details.
Ticket availability limited, I'll confirm exact number of tickets ASAP.

Any queries, just PM me.

Steve

Sorry, only just read this post, I did request that people PM me for info as I'd posted on 8 different forums and in several places on some of them.

Presentation was well attended and Lyndon received a healthy boost to his Dakar funds.
