JayP as a ‘Professional Athlete’ doesn’t just compete. Jay is an ambassador who enjoys giving back to the sport that has sculpted him into the rider he is today. Providing experiences and opportunities for others is what led to the launch of his own Backyard Series Events – Fat Pursuit and Gravel Pursuit. It doesn’t stop there as Jay also loves to speak, share and educate. Jay can educate through different scenarios and offers consultation on many topics.

A Ride with a Purpose

My purpose in life is to encourage, educate and inspire people to ride bikes for fun, health, transportation, sport and adventure, no matter their fitness or motivation. A healthy, fun-filled life powered by cycling makes happier people, safer stronger communities and a healthier planet.

My Backyard Series

While creating this event, I’ve often mumbled that it will soon become the premier winter ultra of the lower 48, and I feel it is right on track. I’m not being biased, am I?  I’m driven to create something that is more than just a bike race. We are creating a truly memorable experience; a winter adventure you won’t forget.

Camps & Clinics

We know our camps are going to be an unforgettable experience and we sincerely don’t want fans and friends to miss out  on the opportunity!  If you have any questions about our upcoming camps or clinics you’d like to ask please fill out the contact form below and we’ll get back to you with more details.


Tracey Petervary

Cycling became a part of Tracey’s life when she realized how much freedom and how much of the world she could see riding her bikes.   tracey fell in love with the speed of the downhills and the challenges of the up hills as well being in the forest.

don't be shy, say hello.
