CareerEdit

Born in Zuya, Bilohirsk Raion, Hrivko competed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the road race, in which he did not finish, and the individual time trial, where he finished 31st.[2] At the 2012 Summer Olympics, he only competed in the road race, finishing in 17th place.[3]

He also competed in the 2015 European Games for the Ukraine in cycling. He earned a silver medal in men's road race.

In 2017 Hrivko was removed from the Tour of Dubai for punching Marcel Kittel in the head during the third stage of that race, prompting a query into whether or not he should be suspended and sanctioned by the UCI.[4]
