A World Champion at 65+

Michel Briat, my good friend who lives in Paris with his wife Danielle and who both have been so kind to us on our visits to his City is now a World Champion.

I woke up this Friday morning to read the results of the World Masters Track Championships in Portugal. Michel has travelled to Australia in since 2007 in his endeavor to win the rainbow jersey.
He finally achieved his goal in Portugal this month in the 65 to 69 age division
Congratulations to a true champion cyclist and person.


  1. That's fantastic to hear Leon (et Michel).

    Bravo Michel!!

    I had to look away when I saw the times for the women's 500mTT. Working on next year ;-)

  2. Congratulations to him. It's terrific!

  3. It's rather unfair on the rest of us that someone his age can look so good and do so well !!
    Congrats anyway!!

  4. Merçi LEON. Je suis très touché par tes compliments.
    Mes 3 Championnats en Australie m'ont beaucoup servis pour arriver au sommet.
    De plus j'ai pu y rencontrer des amis merveilleux.
