dustingrice Dave's 24k Gold Bike showed up at our house in California a few years ago, I was honored to place each hand on the grips & stand above it. It seriously felt like 40lbs.. Now imagine doing 1 handed whips on Vert ? 10 years ago ? No one today even does that. This might be the first time in action sports history that we've ever experienced anything like this on this level, absolutely insane scrolling thru FB & Instagram, as tragic as it is I do love seeing every single post & hearing the stories, memories, and impacts he had on just about everyone all around this tiny little world. Even Nickelback tweeted about it. We truly do have a very close BMX Family. Not one of us can yet even process what just happened these past 24 hours. My heart, like everyone else, is still just like completely dropped. About the weight of a 24k bike. Hearts landed flat. Can't even imagine the ones closest to him & his family. I want to quote & repost a few powerful paragraphs from @danewild @albesbmx since likely millions of us can say nearly the exact same words: "Dave Mirra. Just that alone has so much weight behind it. Dave was easily the reason myself, and many others started riding around the late 90s. Something about his charming personality, his good looks, and his ability to ride a BMX bike like no other. He captured our imaginations with his video games, his how-to's and his BMX bikes.

Dave, thank you. From the bottom of my heart, for every single thing you've done in your life. You changed millions of lives. You are the reason why I now sit on my couch, where I am surrounded by my little family, with a BMX bike and road bike. You are the reason I got a job in the BMX industry. You are the reason my phonebook is loaded with BMX friends from all over the world. Your incredible riding inspired me to pick up a BMX bike." Thanks for all of your words @danewild and everyone else who has shared theirs. Already the entire world misses you Dave. The amount of energy flowing with thoughts of you is truly magical. #miracleboy #davemirra #rideinpeace #legendsliveforever @davemirra

dustingrice there he is.. took this pic at dave's original warehouse when his vert ramp was still there. very difficult day for the entire world of bmx. anyone remember seeing something recently about him putting the vert ramp back up? so hard to process all of this right now #miracleboy #protown #davemirra #rip #legendsliveforever 5d
  •   slimquady85 I saw that he was gonna put it back up, and was so stoked that he was gonna start riding again. He was one of the biggest heroes in mine as well as countless other kids that swung their leg over a BMX bike in the last 20 years. So sad and heart broken today. #RideInParadiseDave 5d
  •   joshridesabike @dustingrice I can confirm for you that there is another vert ramp being put together in the animal house #letthelegendliveon 5d
  •   ajanayalater Yeah there is a vert ramp there. But it's not built all the way. Mike M owns it. Dave just let him use the space. I had talked to Dave a few months back and we were going to start riding it. I'm crushed. 5d

dustingrice Wow. The first photo I ever took @ridethefactory seriously insane. Exactly 5 years ago today @evanmoyle & I took a lunch break from our full time jobs and first stepped foot into our own indoor warehouse space in Minneapolis, then signed our lives away. 25 years old leasing a fricken warehouse for our hobby. Little did we know it would start to become one of Minnesota's longest running indoor parks & completely change park riding around our scene, cranking out some of the worlds most talented riders of all ages. HUGE thank you to the very first keyholders, builders, parents & families, kids, all riders, events & sponsors, visitors from out of town, none of this would be possible without you, you have all been a part of something very, very special in the history of our local BMX scene. Thank you all so much, can't even imagine these next 5 years... #buildyourscene #ridethefactory #anniversary #mnbmx #ridemn #minneapolis #onlyinmn More details about our story on our website http://ridethefactory.com 1w

dustingrice Meet Elijah:) We are at the sobriety home has been living at twice now. I received a random email from his mom saying that it's their son's 18th birthday & it would mean the world to them if I made a surprise appearance. He rides BMX & has seen me ride at the MN State Fair, the look on his face was priceless when he walked around the corned & realized who had come to see him. I brought him a new hat, we talked about so many different things & built some excitement for the future. Very good to see you Elijah, looking forward to you getting out of this place & back on the bike @ridethefactory 🏼🏼 #spreadthelove #bmxfamily #buildyourscene #ridethefactory #mnbmx #ridemn #linkfoundation @linkfoundation 2w
