Fueled by Monster Energy, and his tireless efforts, Brian is busy filming, and releasing videos daily on the massively influential YouTube page, “The Deegans.” He consistently cranks out entertaining social media content that is fresh and engaging. It’s not easy to eclipse winning X-games gold, and multiple championships, but the job he has done guiding his three children towards their dreams is some of his greatest work. Not only has he been a great coach, and inspiration to many, but all while staying in peak riding condition, racing off road trucks, filming his podcast, and doing personal appearances for his sponsors. His enduring popularity with fans of riding and racing attracts top-level sponsors to his programs like Ford and Can-Am. Brian continues to outwork everyone, which is why he is one of the most liked and respected ambassadors in our industry and draws huge crowds wherever he goes.
