“I’ve achieved my dream,” he said, quoted on the French cycling federation’s website.
“I’m happy I didn’t disappoint my supporters,” added Gaillard, a member of the Cyclosport Club de Vesoul in the Haut Saône department.
Earlier this year, Robert Marchand set an Hour record for the 105+ age group, riding 22.547 kilometres at the same track where Gaillard set his record.
