Hi - Can anyone local recommend a reasonable hotel to stay in Riga?

Also if I can get a ride to the race sites that would be cool.

I arrive at Riga airport on Friday 2 July at 14:05

Hey Paul!

If Gints or anyone else hasn't already contacted you, then I can get you from the airport to any hotel in Riga by car. There is a free bus (22nd Lidosta-Abrenes iela) also, leaving from the airport to the centre of Riga every 15min.

You can search the hotels on google because they are all available in english too. I haven't really spent a night at a hotel in Riga :D

If you need any help you can PM me anytime.

Thanks for the advice - booking a hotel in a new city is always tricky,
and the best prices tend to not be on the net.

I have booked for the weekend:

Europa City Riga Hotel
Brivibas Str. 199c,
Riga, 1039
Latvia
866-539-0036

although it seems the hotel is not near Riga City!
I can cancel the booking if something better turns up. Aivara, if you have time to meet me I will pay you for gas etc. I arrive 14:05 on lufthansa from frankfurt 14:00pm Friday

Sorry to hear that, I was supposed to be sharing a room with him in Jurmala.
Ryanair sucks big time - it is the airline from hell! Just driving to Frankfurt now before flying to Riga. With Lufthansa.

Finally got out of hospital today (had an operation on Tuesday - no serious skating for at least a month...) - pity that Thiago didn't make it to Latvia (he got his GOG truck now, so he would be too fast to catch anyway ;)

Paul Price and Sj Kalliokoski are already here, so looks like it will be a great race tomorrow (not for me this time)!

Hot weather, girls & slalom - it's Jurmala baby :D

I didn't had a calendar with me ;)

It was really hot weekend with some close racing – in special slalom Kuzmins won and my ‘’Wheelbite’’ fellow youngster Marks Kiselovs took second. Third was Sausins. In tight Sausins was unstoppable and won the Baltic championship title. By the way, his the first guy ever who become Latvian champion (it was in 1989 – few months before I was born :D) and he is the first Latvian who won medals in Euros (3rd in 1995, just behind Luca and Ridoli )!

About my racing - I got out of the hospital on Friday afternoon with my broken thumb. Now I must keep my hand like you can see on the right background side of ‘’Junior podium’’ picture for a month or so. But as I am really addicted to slalom racing and as it was my 5year birthday as a skateboarder in that weekend (my first race was the World cup ‘’Baltic sea’’ 2005 – you were there, Jani ;) I decided to make at least a symbolic runs besides being the speaker of the race. In special and tight it was quite hard because my hand hurts every time I wave it.
On Sunday GS there were 3 runs for everybody and of course here I didn’t need to wave so active – I did only 1 run and with 1.2sec lead it was enough to become Baltic champion in GS (actually, it was funny, that everybody shouted ''Slow down'' not ''Go'' because they were afraid that I can hurt myself more seriously)!

We had a great weekend and of course huge THANK YOU to Paul and Pokkis for coming to our race and Jurmala city council for support! ! !

Three different winners - what a great level of racers in such a small country (but big in slalom!)

Congrats!
