骑自行车的世界纪录是可以打破的,即使你105岁了。

对于法国人罗伯特·马尔尚来说,这正好是创造骑自行车新的世界纪录的年纪。

星期三,马尔尚在法国圣冈丹休闲基地举办的国家室内自行车馆105岁以上年龄组中用了一个小时完成了大约22.537公里的赛程,创造了新的世界纪录。

他说: “不,我不累。我原想我的腿会疼,但并不疼。我的胳膊有些疼。你总要有某个部位会疼的。”

这还不是马尔尚最好的表现。三年前,这位退休的消防队员一个小时骑了26.927公里。那也是100岁以上年龄组的一项世界纪录。

105-year-old Frenchman Sets Cycling World Record

Cycling world records can be broken, even if you’re 105 years old.

For Frenchman Robert Marchand, it turned out to be the perfect age to set a new world record for bicycling.

On Wednesday, Marchand, who wore a tight yellow and purple jersey, set the world record in the 105-plus category by riding nearly 22.547 kilometers in one hour at the Velodrome National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France.

He told BFMTV that he "could have done better."

"My legs didn't hurt," he said. "My arms hurt but that's because of rheumatism."

This was not Marchand’s best time. Three years ago, he rode 26.927 kilometers in an hour. That also was a word record for the over-100 category.

"I'm not in such good shape as I was a couple of years back," he told AFP news agency. "I am not here to be champion. I am here to prove that at 105 years old you can still ride a bike."
