F1 star Valtteri Bottas had a change of pace over the weekend, when he competed in a gravel race on his bike.
However, those who took to the start line in Colorado around the star, might not have noticed who they competing against. Instead of lycra, Bottas opted to compete in a Duffman suit – a famous character from The Simpsons.
Bottas shared a video from the hill climb event on Instagram, and he said: "Duff Man rode the @sbtgrvl HLL CLMB, Duff Man won the costume competition, Duff Man won the amount of his weight (and mates) of @denverbeerco beer!
"And Duff Man donated all of it to the people attending @sbtgrvl as spectators or competitors!"

"Mans left Mercedes and decided to be happy," one fan joked. While a second added: "Valtteri doing side quests!"
"Any chance you can go Mario Kart next race and toss a banana peel at Max? I’m tired of hearing the Dutch national anthem every weekend," a third said. And another added: "He’s really living his best life!"
