The evergreen French cyclist Robert Marchand, during his record-setting ride.
Marchand holds the hour record for 100+ age category. To give you an idea of what that distance means, three years ago at the same velodrome, he completed 110 laps in the track in an hour when setting his world record in 2014.
After setting the record, Marchand said that he “could have done better, but missed a sign showing 10 minutes to go. Otherwise I would have gone faster, I would have posted a better time. I’m now waiting for a rival.”
