Yesterday the news broke that BMX legend Dave Mirra committed suicide. There are few who are able to transcend an individual sport within the action sports universe, but the Miracle Boy was one of them. Dave's impact on the world is hard to measure- I grew up watching him compete in the X-Games, Gravity Games, reading about him in magazines, even doing drawings of him for school. It's safe to say he had a huge influence in getting me interested in action sports, and I'm sure countless others. Rest In Peace.
