Val enjoys a duathlon home run

Another edition of Valtteri Bottas' Duathlon charity event took place on Sunday in picturesque Pajulahti, and the man himself was naturally on the starting line. After a 5km run, competitors embarked on a 20km mountain bike trek which was completed by another 3km run. Bottas clocked in 11th overall, out of 100 competitors, improving on his personal best.
