A cyclocross cardiologist buddy of mine from Louisville, ://www.drjohnm.org/2014/02/100-is-the-new-80-if-you-are-good-to-yourself-and-lucky/”>John Mandrola, from Louisville, sent me a link to a Frenchman, Robert Marchand, who at 102, set a new hour record on the track. He rode 16.7 miles. If I can ride 16 mph on a bike when I’m 102, I’ll be stoked.
Right now about 1 out of every 10,000 of Americans live to 100. That is changing, but not super fast. I doubt many of the 100 year old here ride their bikes much. I’ve never been convinced that racing bikes is very healthy for your body. At least to the extent I do it. I’m sure if I would have done a “toned down” career, it would be beneficial, but that wasn’t happening.
Anyway, chapeau to you Robert. I hope you break your record at 110.
