PARIS—Robert Marchand, a 105-year-old French rider, on Wednesday beat his own hour record on the open cycling track, according to local report.
Marchand rode 22.547 kilometers at the Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines velodrome outside Paris, setting a record in the senior hour endurance test.
“It’s okay. I had no pain in the legs but in my arms because I have rheumatism,” he told BFMTV news channel.
“I have not seen the label of the last ten minutes, otherwise I would have gone little faster,” he added.
The French cyclist has already set two records after the age of 100 in 2012 and 2014.
