Update: On the first of july Artūrs passed away from an injury after falling in a contest doing 36-doublebar over a spine! I give biggest commiseration to his family! Griķis was a rider to look after- always riding, laughing, helping others. A rider with a goal to get better everyday! It's hard to see him pass away while remembering him out-growing my skill in months, and reaching a skill lever that i will never reach! He went from a student to a mentor and didn't find the success going to his head. As to that day Artūrs always seemed to be unbreakable, after each fall he got back on his legs and continued riding! He was a huge loss to the bicyle community in Latvia! Rest in peace buddy!

Artūrs Griķis starting his second season in bmx(already rippin it) joins Parbmx team. Artūrs has been killing it recently, this year he started to compete in the pro class- and already has taken some podiums. He can't stop, won't stop!
