In the bellow sentence, I think the second "in" is redundant and should be erased. Because the first "in" belongs to "involved" and the second one is an error.

... suggest ways in which some risks involved in such sports can be reduced.

    It's not redundant. The second in is a complement of involved.

  • If you're looking to remove a redundant "in" then replace "in which" with "by which" or "whereby"..."in which" sounds weird here anyway. Commented Apr 27, 2017 at 20:29

You are misparsing. in which points to a missing complement of reduced, not of involved: the ways are ways of reducing the risks.

 ...ways in which some risks involved in such sports can be reduced.
