BMX bike legend Dave Mirra has died. The 41 year old's body was found in his truck in Greenville, North Carolina Thursday with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

He once held the record for the most X Games medals. Mirra leaves a wife and two kids.

It appears he was struggling to find a new passion post-BMX career. He was working with kids and trying to get them involved with extreme sports. However nothing could substitute the adrenaline rush he got from BMX competition.
