100-year-old sets cycling record

The title of the article is, "100-year-old sets cycling world record".

From the article:

Frenchman Robert Marchand entered the cycling record books in the one-hour event on Friday, three months after celebrating his 100th birthday.

Marchand rode 24.251 kilometres around an indoor track to establish the first-ever hour performance in the 100-years-plus category.
That distance-in-an-hour got my attention, until I realized it was km, not miles; it's about 14.9 mph. It's still a great speed for a 100-year-old to maintain. And doesn't he look good? It's the kind of centenarian I'd like to be... if I'm gonna live that long.
