Sometimes the proof required for us to see that at even those who appear fearless are dealing with their own struggles, is more real than we would prefer to experience. Dave Mirra wasn’t just an athlete. He wasn't just a BMX legend. He was an integral part of a group of pioneers who brought extreme sports to the limelight it current enjoys. They showed 90's kids like us that new heights CAN be achieved, they demonstrated a truly SkyBlue mentality before its time. He was one of those people who seemed to be doing exactly what they were put here to do, pushing the limits of the physical and mental human existence; but there is no guarantee on our time on this planet. What he was dealing with we will never know but one thing is for certain, Dave Mirra helped to inspire a generation of kids to push their physical and mental limits, a contribution which will have a lasting impact for years and years to come.
Our deepest condelences to the Mirra Family and the BMX community.
