The 61 Year Old Farmer Who Won the World’s Toughest Race

This is crazy stuff. In 1983, at the age of 61, Cliff Young won the 543 mile Sydney to Melbourne race which some apparently call the toughest in the world. When I first read this I was slightly suspicious it wasn't true, however, after doing some more searching I've turned up references to the win on Parliment of South Wales website and an obituary from the Sidney Morning Herald. Apparently Cliff won the race in part because he didn't know all the other runners were sleeping for 6 hours a night.
