Also was just about to post this. Dreadful, did so much for the sport, icon and legend. Thoughts go out to the two kids and wife.

Sad.

But, anyone ever watch road fools 9. Rick moliterno and the guys having one long shit talk fest about mirra. everyone always made fun of him for being the x games poster boy. Would wear on one after awhile.

People were ripping hard on him a few months back when he did the video with his son and wrecked on the little dirt jump. Always seemed like he got ripped on just for being Dave Mirra

no one ever seems like the type, hard times hit hard. With Collin it was his partner leaving him, could it be the same in this case?

He's got a wife and two kids no?  Fucked up.

It would have been great to have parents, but it made BMX so much more hardcore and real not being able to buy anything new, ever.

yeah he hashtagged "be a dad not a fad" on his insta a lot, seems like doing this is the opposite of that

he was super competative though, after winning a shit load of bmx comps he switched to rally, then triathalon, i imagine he put a lot of pressure on himself to compete and push himself as hard as he could, maybe he just cracked under the pressure and felt he wasnt living up to his own expectations. maybe

whatever the reason, sucks he was in the place where he felt like suicide was the only way out. RIP Miracle Boy

It's strange to think how I never considered him my favorite rider. Even back when I first got into bmx, I liked Nyquist more. But after all of the time I spent on his games, all of the exposure he's given to bmx, the overall clean-cut and dedicated image he had while representing bmx, there's no reason he shouldn't be one of everyone's favorite riders.

If he's riding in heaven, if there is a heaven, I hope he has huge Slim Jim stickers on his wings.
