The BYE will consist of 5 race stages. They will vary from 2-8 miles of racing each. Some will be point-to-point, others will be multiple laps. The top 13 finishers at each stage will be awarded between 1-13 points. Riders with the most points at the end of the day will be declared the Kings and Queens of The Backyard!

After a day of racing in the Backyard, we will roll as a group back to the Park Road Shopping center, where Sir Edmond Halley's Restaurant & Freehouse is hosting the Terrapin Beer BYE Afterparty. We'll have hot chili and cold Terrapin beers for race participants. We will also have the awards ceremony here. If you have friends that are not racing, have them meet you at Sir Ed's starting around 5pm!
