Romain Grosjean: how is he training?

Romain Grosjean is a Swiss-born French racing driver. He crashed in a big accident during the F1 Barhein Grand Prix in 2020. A terrible accident from which he escaped unscathed. Now, he’s competing in the 2021 IndyCar Series with Dale Coyne Racing.

As any top athlete, Romain needs to train a lot. In racing cars, the neck needs to be strong. But not only. Arms. Heart. Reflex. To be competitive in that world, you need to focus an many aspects.

A lot of racing drivers .ie Brendon Hartley are cycling a lot. Romain is a big fan of the Megève Mont-Blanc Cycling (former TIME Megève Mont-Blanc), and reminds that: “The bike is an integral part of my physical preparation”.

From a bike to a triathlon, there’s just one step! That’s the reason why he was competing at the Triathlon Alpe d’Huez in 2018. Here are his results, found on the official website:

  • Swimming 2,2km
    Finishing at a 632nd place this first step.
  • Transition 1 – from swimming to cycling
  • Cycling 118km 3200D+
    5h 36’26’‘16
    Climbing the Alpe d’Huez in 1h 18’42’‘03
  • Transition 2 – from cycling to running
    After cycling, he was 290th. So he beated 342 competitors in the mountains.
  • Running 20km 340D+
    1h 48’42’‘31

He finished the race in 8h 21’26, 2h21 behind the winner.

At a 198th place, on 1054 athlets. So, he beated about 100 other runners in last step of this triathlon. To end the race in the first 20% finishers.

That’s a good job, for sure!
