History

The PCA was founded in the late 1990’s primarily to promote the BAR (Best All-Around Rider). The PA BAR was founded on the premise of offering PA licensed riders an opportunity to earn points in selected races during the road racing season culminating with the awarding of a champions jersey at season’s end. The PA Track BAR has been extended for 2016. All riders have the opportunity to earn points on select Tuesday nights and Saturday’s through September.  Master Categories have been changed for 2016 to 40+ (Cat 1/2/3/4) and 55+ (Cat 1/2/3/4).

Categories and Eligibility

The following Tuesday night categories will compete for PA Track BAR points:

  • PRO-AM Men (Cat 1-2)
  • PRO-AM Women (Cat 1-3)
  • Stagiaires (Cat 2-3)
  • Future Stars (Juniors 13-18 A & B)

The following Saturday categories will compete for PA Track BAR points:

  • Masters (Eligible riders are 40+ and 55+ in age [Cat 1-4])
  • Women (Cat 3-4)

While all licensed riders are eligible to earn points the 2016 PA Track BAR championship will be awarded to the PA rider with the most points at the end of the competition. Awards will be presented to the top three riders in each category regardless of state affiliation at the 2016 PCA Awards banquet.
