Mary McConneloug (born June 24, 1971 in San Francisco, California) is a racing cyclist from the United States, specializing in competitive mountain biking. She is a four time USA Cross Country Mountain Bike National Champion having captured the title in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2008.

Mary graduated from Santa Clara University in 1993 with her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance.[1]

McConneloug twice represented her native country at the Summer Olympics (2004 and 2008), where she finished in 9th and 7th place in the final rankings of the women's cross-country race. In 2003, she claimed the silver medal at the Pan American Games in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, behind Argentina's Jimena Florit (gold). After nearly 15 years of international competition in cross country racing (World Cups) and representing USA Cycling National Team for 13 years, Mary and her other half (longtime teammate and husband) Mike Briderick have turned their focus to Enduro MTB racing. Here they push their limits and refine their skills for this down hill style racing discipline. M and M have been following the Enduro World Series as Master's (40+) athletes.
