The PCA board has spent the last several weeks reviewing race fliers and state championship applications to award a state event to the many bids that have been received. A lot of work goes into this process as they board takes the selection seriously and it can be tough to pick one event over another. All of the bids we’ve received so far in 2012 are above board and while it’s tough to make a final choice we do use a “first right of refusal” philosophy to honor events that did not make the cut in 2012. Some of the state events listed below had already been awarded but the board wanted to give a complete list.
The PCA board is proud to announce the following races that have been awarded a 2012 PA Road State Championship and First Right of Refusal for 2013:
Time Trial: 2012 Philadelphia Amateur TT (6/2)
Road Race: Oley Valley Junior Road Race (8/12)
Criterium: Grandview Grand Prix (7/21) – First right of refusal for 2013 to Liberty Criterium
Time Trial: Lake Nockamixon Masters State TT (7/28)
Criterium: Gretna Bikes Race Avenue Criterium (6/17) – First right of refusal for 2013 to JBN Bicycle Race
Thanks to the promoters who’ve so hard to put on state caliber quality events!
