When we first heard that Dave Mirra had passed away and the circumstances, much like many of you, we were in disbelief and trying to understand why somebody who had everything could take their life. Today, X-Games released a new interview with Dave Mirra’s wife, Lauren, discussing some of his final weeks and days leading up to the incident. They also discuss the brain test results verifying that Dave was battling Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, the same thing researchers are finding on NFL players brains with many concussions, which explains the struggle and state of mind he was battling with in those final months, weeks and days.
