US Open Fat Bike Beach Championship
March 23 - March 24
The US Open Fat Bike Beach Championship is a race like none other in the USA. Held on an all sand course along the pristine shores of Wrightsville Beach, this course will prove both challenging for competitors and fun to watch for families and fans. With the recent and fast rising popularity of fat bikes, bikes with tires wider than 4″, riding a bicycle in the thick sand has become easier than ever.
The athlete who completes the most number of laps and has the lowest total time for that number of laps will be awarded the win.
Fans are encouraged to bring more cowbells and whistles to jeer and cheer for their favorite racers.
Sunday features an optional 18-mile social bike ride on the beach from Fort Fisher to Bald Head Island and back.
As host resort, we will have special rates for competitors in the championship!
