The ESPN 2016 Summer X-Games Austin Adds Dave Mirra BMX Park Best Trick Competition

ESPN X-Games is adding a special Dave Mirra BMX Park Best Trick competition to X Games Austin 2016 in honor and memory of the X Games and BMX legend. The competition celebrating Mirra’s life and legacy will take place on Saturday, June 4, at the Circuit of The Americas, where the winner of the competition will be awarded the Mirra Golden Pedal and prize money. Admittance to the competition will be available to X Games Austin ticket holders that day on a first come-first serve basis.
A true action sports and X Games icon, Mirra owned the record for the most medals in X Games history up until 2013, totaling 23 medals in BMX – 14 being gold – and one from RallyCar Racing. Dave’s storied career and supreme dominance of BMX at X Games is illustrated through several historic moments and records, resulting in 13-straight X Games medals beginning at the inaugural X Games event in 1995. Mirra is one of only two athletes in the event’s history to have won multiple gold medals in three separate X Games events.
