Dave Mirra

Recommended Posts

 

Tributes have been paid to BMX legend Dave Mirra who has died at the age of 41.

 
The body of the sports star was found in his truck on Thursday afternoon following an apparent suicide, reports TMZ.
 
Dave was considered an icon in the BMX world and was also a skilled Sabaru Rally Team driver.
 
He also held the record for the most X-Games medals until 2013, with a total medal count of 24.
 
The star is survived by his wife and two daughters.

 

:(

 

Obviously not as well known as Tony Hawk but I had great fun as a kid on his BMX game.

Yeh, I mostly know him from the game as well. Tragic.

RIP Mirra-cle man.

 

Spent a load of time watching him and Matt Hoffman outdo each other in XGames, he was fearless and always seemed to pip my favourite (Hoffman) by the smallest of margins. Pioneer of the sport and sad to see him go so young. Highly successful, good family life... not sure why he felt he had to end it all (if reports are true). You will be missed Dave, but your legacy lives on.
