Many years and miles later and Brent is still doing what he loves. Brent craves long tough rides and is a finisher of some pretty brutal events such as the Leadville 100 (shown here) Barnburner 104 and the legendary Vapor Trail 125 (once on a rigid singlespeed!) Brent is an extremley knowledgeable bike mechanic having spent many years turning wrenches in some high profile shops in Los Angeles, Salida Colorado, Southwest Utah and Bentonville Arkansas.
