Re: Dave Mirra BMX Legend Dead at 41

If u look through his fb page he just seemed so happy and upbeat about his life and his future. I know these things always come as a shock but I think I'll wait until the investigation is conducted before I believe it was suicide.

Everybody is happy on FB. Real life can really suck sometimes. RIP

True. Just seemed like he was really looking forward to the future and competing in iron man contests... Just a shame.

Wow. Horrible news. Still in shock after reading this and wishing it wasn't true. May God bless his soul and be with his wife and children, parents, friends and family and give them strength at such a terrible time.

It can be difficult to see a person's inner pain from the outside. It's embarrassing and people will often make extra effort to make sure it doesn't show. I hate stuff like this. People will now look back and realize the signs and wish they could have done something sooner. Mental health is a serious issue that isn't taken seriously enough.


Until I experience one first hand I will continue to believe that "barn finds" are a hoax

Wow, I idolized him in the 90's and even more so once I was able to get a Haro as a kid.  RIP, I hope I can get my hands on a nice Mirra sometime and keep it in his memory.
