Many would believe that there comes a time in every cyclist’s life to hang up that bike for the last time and submit to a life of shuffle board and early bird specials down at the senior center. No one apparently told that to Robert Marchand. At an age where most people would just be lucky to reach, Marchand just set the World Hour Record for the category that had to be created just for him – 105+. You read that right, Robert is 105 years old and just rode 22.547 km (about 14 miles) in an hour. The record comes a few years after Marchand set the previous record for riders over 100 in 2012.
Chapeau Mr. Marchand. We hope to see you set the record for 110+ in the future!
