Washington D.C, Feb 5 (ANI): BMX bike legend Dave Mirra, who once had the record for the most X Games medals, has apparently taken his own life at the age of 41.
According to the police, Mirra’s body was found with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in his truck in Greenville, North Carolina. He had been in the area visiting with friends, TMZ.com reported.
Dave’s good friend and fellow BMX legend T.J. Lavin said, “I just wish he would have called me. I would have jumped on a plane in a second. There’s always another way. If anyone needs help, just please get it. I feel sick about this.”
The police are investigating the death.
Mirra, who leaves a wife and two kids behind, hosted 2 seasons of ‘Real World/Road Rules Challenge’ on MTV and was the namesake of several BMX video games. (ANI)
