French cycling record holder Robert Marchand passed away Saturday at the age of 110, according to France 3 TV.

The Frenchman bid farewell to life in a nursing home in the town of Mitre Maury, northeast of Paris.

In 2017 Marchand set a record for the over 105-year-olds, traveling 22 km and 534 meters in an hour at Racecourse Saint Quentin in Evelyn.

Marchand survived two world wars and started cycling at the age of 67, and despite his advanced age, he competed in all major races.

In 1992, he took a bike trip from Paris to Moscow, and the Frenchman stopped riding the bike at the age of 108 only, due to his hearing impairment.
