Brad Gardner of Wilmington competes in the 5th Annual U.S. Open Fat Bike Beach
Championship on Wrightsville Beach, March 23, 2019. Races in three categories, the
Fat (12+ miles), the Really Fat (18+ miles) and the Super Fat (24+ miles), provide an
ever-changing 2-mile loop taking participants through thick sand and obstacles,
and over ramps to hard-packed sand down at the water’s edge.
