DEP, Arturo Grávalos
The Riojan cyclist Arturo Grávalos, professional with the EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team since 2021 and previously cyclist of the U23 structure for two seasons, passed away in the early hours of Friday morning after a long illness. Grávalos (1998-2023) had been 25 years old last March 2. His death leaves an irreplaceable hole in our hearts, as we will never forget his joy and his everlasting smile. His will to live, always present even before the onset of the disease, leaves us with thousands of magical moments in and out of competition. Grávalos underwent surgery in November 2021 for a brain tumour that had been diagnosed a few weeks earlier, after several days with strange sensations during training. The evolution of that operation was very positive, but the cyclist had to undergo surgery several times to try to eradicate a tumour.
May he rest in peace.
