My dad is 88 and still riding, but not as much as this guy. I wonder if it's easy to set age-related records once you pass the century mark (years, not miles) since there's not much competition.
I noticed one phrase in the article: "He is just five feet tall (1m52), but is in superb health." Are most people at five-foot in poor or middling health? This also brings a tech question to mind. Does he ride 700 or 650?

Lets see how long these geezers keep riding (those are not proper cycling shorts!)

Did the podium girls dope (especially the one on the right)? I think Jan is wondering too...

In my opinion, a woman's breast should not be bigger than her head... and what is that dude in the middle looking at, his hand? or....
