By on Friday, July 13, 2012

World championship leader Fernando Alonso knows how to relax between grands prix.

The Spaniard, who has scored points in his Ferrari in every race so far in 2012, this week contested a cycling road time trial in his native Asturias.

Alonso, 30, completed the 21 kilometre course in just under 29 minutes, finishing third on a state-of-the-art carbon bike in a field of more than sixty riders.

On Twitter, he said he was "happy" with the result.
