According to reports Dave Mirra was found with a self inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Dave was found in his truck, and there was no note or anything that has been found. All that has been said is that it was a self inflicted wound. The BMX legend leaves behind a wife and two children.
I hope that the press can give his family the privacy that they need in order to try and comprehend his death. I know that in the days coming there will be a lot of different posts as to why he did it, how his family is coping, and probably pictures of his casket. I want you to know that you will not find any of that here. I believe that we should honor him with a post, and not try and gain website clicks by continuously posting about a death.
Dave, thank you for being one of my favorite hosts ever (The Challenge), and one of my first crushes when I was old enough to realize what a crush was. You were an idol to so many people I knew growing up, along with people all over the world. You changed the BMX world forever.
May you find your peace and may your family find peace during this difficult time.
