Indurain was 30 when he took the record in 1994, and won the Tour de France for the fifth time the following year.

So who is the youngest to hold the record?

Talking of old men ...

Who was the rather tanned VIP hugging Brad after Big Mig?

Is this an old man's record?

Partly because of the mental stuff needed for it and partly because the preparation and recovery would eat into a money-earning Pro's schedule.

Alex Dowsett is 26 so it doesn't have to be an old mans record. It seems to be something typically done to crown a career but he found a way of fitting it into his pro schedule with no ill effects (well none we know of but he hasn't raced much this year since).

Perhaps, rather like Grand Tour winners, the body needs to have gained a little resilience and development and that is why the record is attempted by those the other side of 25yrs.
