Dave Mirra BMX legend dies at 41

Post by Admin » Fri Feb 05, 2016 6:13 pm

Dave Mirra, one of the legends of BMX and one of the first pro riders died yesterday aged 41.

He was an Icon of the X Games, winning 24 medals between 1995 and 2008. In recent years he had been driving Rallycross for Prodrive and competing in Ironman and Triathalon events.

His apparent suicide shows us that depression and mental illness can hit anyone, our thoughts are with his family.
