Marchand has a huge following in France and was cheered on by hundreds of fans as he rode round the velodrome at Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines.
The Frenchman fell short of his own previous record of 26.927 km in the over-100s category, which he set in 2014 at the age of 102 years old, but secured the record in a new category - the over-105s.
"I'm not in such good shape as I was a couple of years back," he told AFP news agency.
