Indonesian Race Car driver Rio Haryanto races first triathlon at Bintan Triathlon 2017
Renowned Indonesian race-car driver Rio Haryanto took part in his first triathlon at the Bintan Triathlon held in Riau Islands recently.
“I participated in this event to work on my cardio and physical strength, but most importantly, I’m here to enjoy the beauty of Bintan Island,” said Haryanto.
After finishing the F1 series in Singapore last year, Haryanto and his fellow racers went to Bintan and Bali for a vacation.
