Legendary BMX biker Dave Mirra has died of an apparent suicide.
The 41-year-old was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Mirra once held the record for the most X Games medals and had his own series of video games titled: Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX.
He also hosted MTVâ€™s The Challenge from 2004 to 2005.
A picture of Mirra and his wife was posted on his Instagram on Thursday with the caption: â€œMy Rock! Thank god.â€
Mirra was a brilliant BMX rider and won 14 gold medals at X Games, despite the fact that his career was nearly ended in 1993 after he was hit by a drunk driver.
But Mirra recovered and he won X Games honors at an astonishing rate between 1995 and 2008, his record of 24 medals over a career was only broken in 2013 by Bob Burnquist.
He was also a rally driver and competed in ironman and triathlons. â€œIronman competitions are an entirely different ballgame. The level of competition is much higher, and there are way more athletes,â€ Mirra told Sports Illustrated.
