Dave Mirra, an icon in the world of BMX biking and one of the most successful athletes in X Games history, was found dead Thursday in his hometown of Greenville, N.C. Police said that the 41-year-old was discovered in his truck with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Mirra was an accomplished BMX rider and one of the most decorated athletes in ESPN’s X Games history, medaling every year from 1995 to 2008 and winning 14 gold medals.
