I loved how he was able to be pretty competitive on different aspects of BMX. Vert and ramp and even dirt.

Such a shame for his family. Dude seemed pretty cool.

Was deffo a guy I looked up to when I was Grom and all we had was BMX plus

The man was like Mr Positivity all around. Amazing athlete and one of my idols growing up. I'll be breaking out the gamecube for some Dave Mirra Pro BMX 2.

RIP Dave. Dude was a huge inspiration when I first started riding.

Hopefully they check him for CTE.

Unfortunately, I predict that to be very very VERY hard.

So tragic. Genuinely left me with a pit in my stomach with him being such a childhood hero.

RIP Dave. Your legacy will always remain.

What a tragedy. RIP.

This is really sad news.
I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness

He was an idol to me growing up riding. Played his games and loved his Fox vid parts and contest runs.

He seemed bit too competitive as some said. Not sure what he actually did as a job in the later parts of his life.

He is so good that he probably doesnt have a serial number on his frame, just a cheat code...
