Longest motorcycle career

An American motorcyclist who currently holds a record for the duration of his professional career, as well as the number of competitions in which he participated.

Today the Internet is replete with ratings of the best extreme sportsmen, and if there is one in which the name of Michael Larocco is not mentioned even once, then we can immediately conclude that the author is not only not familiar with the topic, but did not read a single article on this topic. One can also be so unambiguous here because over the 19 years of his professional career, Mike has become a living legend, the author of a huge number of new tricks and figures, and also a teacher for several generations of motorcyclists at once.

Mike Larocco was born on February 12, 1971, in Michigan City, Indiana.

On Thursday, February 4, 2016, extreme cyclist Dave Mirra became a legend. The body of the famous biker was found in his own van in the area where he allegedly visited friends. Death came from a gunshot wound, which, according to the police, the 41-year-old athlete inflicted on himself.

Wonder boy
Dave Mirra was born in a small provincial town of Chittenango in the state of New York in an average working American family. Mirra was the second child and grew up with an older brother named Tim.
