Dave Mirra Takes on IMLP Today! Make That IMMT!
Quote | Reply
I'm so stoked about this for him! He's pumped and bound and determined to give it all out there. And it's pretty cool that he pushes himself to go the KQ route rather than take the celeb shot. Much respect. This is gonna be fun to follow!

Edit: Well, it looks like the cat's outta the bag on Twitter so time to resurrect this thread. Two IM's in 3 weeks! It's certainly not the first time this has been done but I reckon few go this route and that's just why this makes sense for Dave! With the experience of IMLP and learning from the things that didn't work, his approach will be quite a bit different on the IMMT course. I wish the man my best and hope he has a good day out there.

Cheers,

Does he really have a shot? What kind of numbers is he putting down?

34:26 (1:46/100m) first half of the swim. If he can hold that he can make up some serious time on the bike.

Basically the Tony Hawk of BMX vert and street riding from the 90's/00's.

Remember Josh Smith? He would have been better. But he just vanished. I googled him a bit ago but forgot what happened. Mirra is a beast though. There is not a Gen Xer out there that doesn't know who he is.

I should add, between him and Hawk, they have lived the best life ever.

10 miles later at 19mph. Hilly course so if that's his uphill speed, pretty impressive. Not sure if there's any legit climbs but i know it's a pretty up and down course. Been following his story for a while now having grown up watching him ride BMX. The dude is committed and busted his ass. His training is pretty sick.

I don't have firsthand knowledge but I hear the first part of bike is downhill. He is definitely super strong on the bike. I know he has got to be stoked about that swim and that his fueling him to keep up the effort and do what he does best......which involves a certain amount of digging deep and bringing the pain!

FYI, the last 10 miles of each loop is largely uphill into a solid SSW headwind today that blows down the valley making it like a wind tunnel. So no surprise at a slower pace there.

Hope his myriad of old BMX injuries (knees) don't derail his run. Not surprised he's crush the bike being right in his wheelhouse.

If my quick scan is correct, it looks like Dave had moved up to ~ 3rd in his age group passing 80+ riders in the age group along the way. Not too shabby for a BMX guy;)

Stop with the BS contrarian shit. This strawman crap you pull is so lame. We all know that WTC requires bike shoes to be put on in transition.

I've read that ENVE is testing it (pros and high profile folks are using already), supposed to be Q4 or early next year from what I recall. Forget what pro had a picture of an ENVE disc on Instagram..

I carry my shoes to the bike mount and put them on there. Faster than running with bike shoe so and OK with WTC.
