The 2012 mountain biking season was one of new experiences and steady improvement. Brennan raced the majority of the USA Pro XCT series, Sea Otter and USA Cross Country Nationals, placing just outside the top 20.
This year, Brennan is motivated to keep the positive momentum rolling forward and focusing on Enduro and Marathon distance racing.
When not training or racing, Brennan works for Hutch's Bicycles and the Bend Endurance Academy, as a mountain bike coach for cyclist 8-16 years of age. Brennan enjoys coaching and feels it is a way to give back and help progress the sport of mountain biking.
