Looks that way. Sad news. I wonder if they will check for CTE during the autopsy.

Always been a fan of Dave's and his work ethic in BMX. Horrible that he had to take his own life.

Damn I hate seeing this! Ive never read or seen anything bad about the guy in the 20 + years I've been watching him in different sports / racing. A genuinely great person is gone. Sad to see someone with apparent inner demons not get help

Never knew he was, but definitely tragic news.

It's fun to see some of the bonkers tricks that riders can pull off. Sad news to hear about a great talent.

One of my childhood idols growing up. I had a GT bike and every time I rode it I wanted to be like him

Absolutely! You couldn't peel me from the tv watching the xgames growing up and seeing him do the first double backflip. Every kid I knew had a bmx bike and wanted to be like him. Sh!t even my parents still remember him because of those years haha. Lately he's been tearing it up in the rally / rallycross circuits so it's just so damn sad. Feel horrible for his wife and kids.

Extremely sad. I knew Dave from my college years as he pretty much lived in our campus townhouse our senior year and has been very close with a couple of my college buddies even now.

Really upset over this one. Just feel horrible for his two little girls. Just hard to swallow that he would do this, seem to always be into his family.
