Still searching for my missing bikes from BITD. 1979 Blue Max serial: CI9 221346 and 1977 Webco serial: 42667. Both were last seen at Spoke and Sport Bicycles in Spokane, WA around 1984. $600 reward if found!!

I really hope this isnt true, but Ive seen multiple sources now.  This guy ruled competition riding through most of my riding career. Amazing talent. Sad end.

Re: Dave Mirra BMX Legend Dead at 41

Damn..

Remember seeing him on MTV cribs about 10 years ago...  His house was somewhere in NC (Charlotte maybe?)

I wonder if he has (had) CTE?  He has suffered from multiple concussions throughout his career I am sure.

All the majors feed off TMZ. The only news source that verifies stories before they post. Seriously. They're lawyers!

Re: Dave Mirra BMX Legend Dead at 41

Wow, that's too bad.  I think the article said Greenville or Greensboro NC.


Hutch Fun Facts: All main line Hutch's with digits only S/N (no letters or baseballs) on the rear drop outs were US made and had their dropouts stamped between late '83 and '86.  Obviously the frame manufacture would occur slightly after that, even if they just threw 'em in a bucket randomly.  There is an obvious date code in that the first 2 digits seem to be the month and the 3rd digit is pretty obviously the last digit of the year running from '83-'86.

Who woulda ever thought we would be considering TMZ as a legit news source??
If TMZ reports it these days....I lean towards believing it.
They pay big $$$ for insider info on the rich and famous.

They broke Michael Jackson's death story years back.   The other news outlets waffled and could not confirm MJ's death (ABC, CBS etc)....whereas TMZ was first and spot on with their source (s).

TMZ is more reputable than many of the "reputable" news sources.
