As reported widely in both liberal and conservative media, 105 year old Robert Marchand (born on 11/26/1911 in Amiens, France) broke his own world record by completing 92 laps in a curved indoor velodrome at an average pace of 14 mph.
Marchand said he didn’t even see the 10-minute warning sign during the event.
“Otherwise I would have gone faster,” he told the AP. “I would have posted a better time. I’m now waiting for a rival.”

Marchand’s coach and friend Gerard Mistler told the AP that despite being just 5 feet tall and weighing 115 pounds, his fitness is a result of his daily cycling, diet (lots of fruit and vegetables, a little meat, and not too much coffee) and proper rest.
