Mirra rides the park with more speed and flow then any rider in bmx today… and the air time he gets takes park riding to a whole new level. See his toronto metro jam segment if you need more proof… It's gotta be from riding all that vert.
I find it somewhat strange with all the anti or 'sold out' mirra statements, He is a very well rounded consistant rider, that is constantly pushing the sport of bmx. He is also a true professional when it comes to the business side of sports, something a lot of people who want to be sponsored don't realize… sponsorship is all about business , marketing, and increasing company revenues.
Next season he'll be starting his own company (i think with the ex ceo from haro?) just like Bob Haro, Matt Hoffman, Rock Moilterno, Jay Mirron etc…. have all done. Dave is one of the last few all round bmx riders who could do it all, flat, vert, street, park… I think anyone that has some pitty hate towards him is either jelous or insecure with themselves. If he wanted to be a professional athelete, raise the level of riding, and make a living of what he loves… then how is that selling out?
