Robert Marchand set the world’s first record in cycling’s over-100 category, doing 24.25 kilometers in 60 minutes.
"I could have gone faster but I didn't want to," Robert said. "I’m not playing at being a champion. I just wanted to do something for my 100th birthday." He has broken his own record every year since.
Last year, at age 106, Robert announced his retirement. But this year he was back on his bike trying to set another record. He needed help mounting and a spotter, but he did it!
