With deep sadness, we confirm the death of a participant in the 2017 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46.
Maris Ozols, aged 67, was married with four children and lived in West London. He suffered a cardiac arrest on Cromwell Road at around the 13 mile mark and received immediate treatment from fellow riders and medical personnel at the scene.
Maris’s son, Martin, said: “Maris lived life to the full. He was a much loved husband, father and grandfather who refused to get old. He died doing what he loved.”
