Brett hails from Sturgis, MI and joined the Rock Solid team in winter of '19-'20. However, before Rock Solid, he worked for another trail building company who sometimes subcontracted with Rock Solid. So technically he started his trail building career working on DH3 at Lake Leatherwood in 2018. Prior to that, he worked at a bike shop in the Kalamazoo area and also was a bank teller for a period of time. He rode bmx in high school and started mountain biking in his late teens/early 20s while working at the bike shop. He would also build backwoods trails here and there during this time.
Noteworthy projects he’s been on while at Rock Solid include Mt. Nebo, Lacrosse, Cuyuna, and Devils Den. His favorite trails are anything downhill chunky or big jumps like Giant’s Ridge and Lake Leatherwood. If you ever come across him on the trail, you’ll find him guarded by his gigantic yet timid Irish Wolf Hound, ‘Huan,’ the trail dog.
