BMX legend – and we don’t use the word lightly – Dave Mirra has died in what appears to be a suicide.
The news report from Greenville, Carolina, indicates that Mirra shot himself in his truck, parked outside a friend’s house. The world of sport has been rocked by it, with plaudits coming from Tony Hawk, Cedric Gracia, Carey Hart and the whole world of BMX. He was 41.
