    Um, *this* POTUS is hardly a model of fitness, despite his superlatives to the contrary.

    And... the only thing that mattered to him about Tour De Trump was that *his* name was on it.

    AND (wait for it)... all of us could ride rings around him, even with *this* bike: Click image for larger version.

    I've seen some senior people riding in competitions. Just need proper/appropriate training and know your limit and enjoy your time

    You guys should meet my friend Nancy. She is in her late 60's or early 70's and CRUSHING the mountain bike race scene. (Seriously, I want to be her when I grow up!)

    I was surprised to learn that John Kerry is in his 70s, so I guess maybe there’s something to that whole active living making you look younger thing.
