When the news hit in the middle of the night that BMX legend Dave Mirra had passed, you're just hoping you're waking up from a nightmare. Unfortunately that's not the case. Although less active on the BMX bike in recent years, Dave leaves a hole in BMX that cannot be filled. Mirra was big time, my example that at least someone in BMX could retire off of it. Many stories come up thinking about Dave and the plan was to go visit him last September but it didn't work out. That moment won't come as Dave is no more.
I've been fortunate to hang out with Dave multiple times during his trips to Europe. Whenever he was at the bar, you know you were sharing some laughs. When he started Mirra Bike Co. I became part of his program and whenever I saw his name pop up on the screen of the phone it freaked me out. Dave Mirra called me!? Starstruck every time.
Dave was an incredible rider and an amazing person but you all know that. Flip through the three pages of Dave Mirra posts to

September, 2005 â€“ San Jose, CA â€“ Dave Mirra, 31, of Greenville, N.C., today took home his first win at the Dew Action Sports Tour, placing first in the BMX Park competition. Mirra’s backflip tailwhip over the spine in his first run helped to earn him a winning score of 92.25. The higher score of two runs is taken to determine the rider’s final score. â€œI did what I wanted to do,â€? said Mirra, who now sits in fifth place in the Tour’s BMX Park standings with 176 points. â€œHeading into Orlando, I’m able to creep back into the points race. Every Tour stop is a building block. You have got to come out strong from the start and finish even stronger. [Second place finisher Scotty] Cranmer is the future of this sport. He is an amazing athlete and he gave me a run for my money.â€? Scotty Cranmer, 18, of Jackson, N.J. edged 26-year-old Los Gatos, Calif. native Ryan Nyquist for the second place spot with a score of 90.50. Nyquist’s first run earned him an 89.75, which he was not able to improve upon after getting a flat tire in his second run.
We were lucky getting so much done the previous day that started off being wet. Wednesday had a better forecast but the temperature stopped somewhere around 15 degrees. It was dry though which was the main thing as we wanted to cruise through Paris on our bikes this time. We had planned to meet up with Thomas Revest and Christian Van Hanja at the Trocadero at noon but Guettler's tire had a small leak so we pumped that up and decided to bring the pump just in case.
