I don't know, I'm 68 and one of my riding buddies is 81 we both ride Skidoo 850's. I'm not totally sure what you are asking but in my book, if you are out riding that's half the game. The rest depends on knowledge from the last 30 years and how well you apply it today. We still ride, maybe not as hard as we once did.
Keep it up, I sure am. Hope to get out west to train with some of the pros this year.

i'm 73, ride a 16 m-8000....y-pipe, tki drive, ti can, just put a 174 on my previous 162....looking forward to another season....i work out pretty hard with weights and stair master, rowing, bike and my own routine using hand dumb-bells....the group i rode with for years have all given up for various reasons...i still go to the same places, hook up with different groups in the parking lot, don't mention my age and with a helmet and gear on, they won't know until i've already established my ability to ride...i also frequently ride alone, but am careful about where i go...i carry a "spot" and a satellite phone, have a good survival pack with storm parka, also lots of outdoor experience with several survival schools, i backpack, hunt elk (took a very nice 6 point), packed him out by myself....not giving up or in to age just yet...:face-icon-small-ton
Nice write up, and keep it up. i agree with the Fitness routines too.

49 and usually ride with younger guys. Two guys above hit the nail on the head. As we get older what you do in the off-season becomes increasingly important. You can't sit around all summer and expect your body to perform. For young and old I suggest a dedicated workout routine heavy on the weights side. Nothing battles age better! Age will not beat me easily lol
