People say age is just a number and for one 97-year-old man from New Zealand, this is true. He has recently claimed a Guinness World Record as the oldest person to participate in a competitive motorcycle race. Just three weeks before his 98th birthday he took part in a storied race in New Zealand had ended up finishing in fourth place.
