Happy Thanksgiving!

Found this to be a good celebration of life... a video from a guy who celebrated his 103 years by climbing 1,500' in one hour on a 6 mile ride.

Translation of his interview: "The legs were great, I was a little short of breath. I had to stop once but it was only because it's the first time I am riding this bike and I didn't know how to reach the water bottle. I will try to break new records until I am 105."

Thank you very much for the video. I have been amazed by his achievements at the velodrome.
Seeing him out on the road with so much joy was a Thanksgiving treat.

Je adore Robert Marchand.
