Sorry, the article is in french, but I was really impressed reading this. For those who cannot read french, the man is 102 years old, and he just
managed  to break his own previous hour record by riding 26,9 kilometers.  Not a personal best time, but an official UCI record! The
category 100+ years old was created specially for himself.

I'm 60 years younger than this man, but I'm not sure I could ever ride faster....

Awesome stuff. I love how he only took up cycling again in 1978.... Aged 67!

I wonder if any of us will live long enough to have a crack at his records  :P
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!
