Biography

“Brent was born and raised in Minnesota but moved to Alaska over 20 years ago. After falling in love with the trails of Eureka, AK, Brent took over a homestead established in the 70’s and where he has lived with his dogs since 2012. He is a three-time Yukon Quest (1000-mile) Champion (2015, 2019 and 2020) receiving the Vet’s Choice award for his dog care in 2015 and 2019.

Brent and his team are excited to be back on the Iditarod trail again in 2022! Mushing is a way of life for Brent – it gives him a chance to get out and explore Alaska, but most importantly it is all about the dogs and the relationship he has with each and every one of them. Getting to know each dog’s behavior and personality is what makes dog mushing such an adventure. Every day is exciting, whether it is traveling on a new trail or learning something new about the dogs. Living his dream and setting and accomplishing goals is what drives Brent every day, along with all of his incredible fan support.
