US Open Fat Bike Beach Championships

2018 Race was a huge success!

Stay Tuned for 2019 Date

Thanks to all the racers, volunteers, and fans for making this year’s race a huge success!

US Open Beach Fat Bike Championships

The US Open Fat Bike Beach Championships is a race like none other in the USA.  Being held on an all sand course along the pristine shores of Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina 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.  Combine Fat Bikes with an ever changing beach and the competitive spirits of a bunch of bicycle riders and we couldn’t help but design a race.

The Course

The course will start in front of the host resort, The Blockade Runner Beach Resort, and traverse whatever mother nature has sculpted for us.  Laying out the course with several elements in mind, tight turns, fast sections at low tide, crossing deep truck tracks, climbing up and rolling down naturally occurring berms from long shore erosion, with of course the safety of spectators, the course will be a multi-lap event that keeps racers in sight of the spectators the whole time.  By keeping the racers tight the event will encourage spectators to line the course and heckle their favorite racer or cheer for their family member.
