French centenarian Robert Marchand, foreground, reacts, after establishing a record for the fastest 100-year-old to cover 100km at the outdoor Velodrome track of Lyon, central France, Friday, Sept. 28, 2012. French cyclist Robert Marchand has ridden 100 kilometers (62 miles) in 4 hours, 17 minutes and 27 seconds. Doesn’t sound fast? Consider this: Marchand is 100 years old. Setting off on his Trek racing bike around noon at a track in Lyon, Marchand covered the distance at an average pace of 23.3 kph (14.5 mph) — not far off the 24.251 kph pace he kept up to set the world hour record for his age group in Switzerland last February.
