Brentt Ramharter is the 2019 US National 24 hour MTB overall Champion. Brentt enjoys long days in the saddle where he specializes in both 12 & 24 hour MTB events. He has been racing mountain bikes since 2016 and has enjoyed this second round of being a professional athlete! If mountains are covered in dirt or snow Brentt can be found skiing or biking in them! “Hoops and stix are my preferred tools for mountains!”
Brentt grew up in the Rocky Mountains near Missoula, Montana. At the age of 17, Brentt entered his first divisional mogul skiing competition . One year later Brentt beat several US Ski Team members at USA junior nationals placing in the finals. One more year later Brentt was competing at the National level successfully and beginning what he hoped to be a dominant professional career. Two knee surgeries, two years in a row ended his rapid rise up. Fast forward 19 years and he coaches moguls for the Purgatory Freestyle Ski Team in Durango , CO.
