He began his career winning silver medals with the Australian team at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
In 2014, Dennis finished second overall behind Bradley Wiggins at the Tour of California, after placing second to Wiggins in the time trial. He also placed second in the Commonwealth Games time trial behind England's Alex Dowsett.
In August 2014, Dennis made a rare mid-season transfer to the BMC Racing Team. He went on to win the World team time trial championships with his new team.
He was named in the start list for the 2017 Giro d'Italia, however he abandoned the race on the 4th stage after injuries due to a crash on stage 2. Subsequently, at the 2017 Vuelta a España, Dennis crossed the line first as part of the BMC squad that won the race's opening team time trial, taking the race leader's red jersey and becoming the first Australian to lead the race since Michael Matthews in 2014.
On 8 February 2015, he set a new hour record of 52.491 kilometres (32.616 miles), beating Matthias Brändle's record by over 600 metres. The record stood until 2 May 2015, when it was broken by Dowsett. Dennis was selected to ride the Tour de France as part of the BMC Racing Team squad supporting Tejay van Garderen. He won stage one's individual time trial, clocking an average speed of 55.446 km/h (34.5 mph) and became the first yellow jersey wearer of the Tour. With this performance, he established a new record average speed for an individual time trial at the Tour de France. He won the Sir Hubert Opperman medal and trophy for Australia's best all-round cyclist in 2015.
At the end of 2018, he won two major Australian awards: Australian Institute of Sport Performance Awards – Male Athlete of the Year and Cycling Australia's Sir Hubert Opperman Medal, which he had previously won in 2015.
In May 2017 Dennis' partner, fellow racing cyclist Melissa Hoskins, announced the couple's engagement as well as her retirement from competition. They married in February 2018. Hoskins gave birth to their first child, a son, later that year, two and a half weeks after Dennis won his first World Time Trial Championship. The family split their time between Girona, La Massana and Adelaide.
At the 2018 Giro d'Italia, Dennis was narrowly defeated in the opening time trial by Tom Dumoulin. However, he took the pink jersey on the second stage by picking up a time bonus in an intermediate sprint. In doing so, he became the first Australian to lead the Giro since Simon Clarke in 2015, and the third Australian to wear the leader's jersey in all three Grand Tours, after Bradley McGee and Cadel Evans. He went on to win the stage 16 time trial and finished the race in 16th place overall, 56 minutes and 7 seconds down on winner Chris Froome.
In August 2018, it was announced that Dennis would join Bahrain–Merida in 2019 on a two-year deal, making the move from BMC alongside team-mates Damiano Caruso and Dylan Teuns.
On 18 July 2019, he abandoned the Tour de France during Stage 12. No reason was immediately given, but later reports indicated that his abandonment was the result over frustration with equipment provided by the team. In an interview he subsequently gave in January 2020, Dennis stated that he left the Tour as his mental health was suffering due to difficulties with the team, and he feared that this would have a knock-on effect on his marriage.
On 25 September 2019, Dennis raced for the first time since abandoning the Tour de France, winning gold in the men's individual time trial at the Road World Championships in Yorkshire. Dennis rode an unmarked BMC bicycle during the World Championship time trial, rather than his trade Mérida machine. Several days later, his former team Bahrain–Merida confirmed that they had parted ways with Dennis on 13 September.
On 9 December 2019, it was announced that Dennis would be joining Team Ineos for the 2020 season. The following month Dennis stated that he had abandoned his attempts to become a contender for the general classification in Grand Tours; instead, he would focus on smaller stage races and working as a domestique in the three-week races. In the 2020 Giro d'Italia, Dennis contributed greatly to his teammate Tao Geoghegan Hart's overall victory with impressive pulls on Stage 18 (Stelvio) and 20 (Sestriere). On the former stage, Dennis won the Cima Coppi award by being the first to reach the summit of the highest climb in the race, that being the Stelvio.
Rohan has a brother named Scott.
