French cyclist Robert Marchand, aged 102, celebrates with fans after beating his record for distance cycled in one hour, at the velodrome of Saint-Quentin en Yvelines, outside Paris, Friday, Jan. 31, 2014. The 102-year-old broke his own world record in the over-100s category Friday, riding 26.927 kilometers (16.7 miles) in one hour, more than 2.5 kilometers better than his previous best time in the race against the clock two years ago.
I’m not entirely sure I could best that speed in an indoor time trial if I took a crack at it today. I need to start working harder.
I hope to hell I’m in as good a shape as this guy when I hit his age.
