2015 BAR/BAT Competition

The Florida Bicycle Racing Association, USA Cycling’s local association in Florida, is proud to announce the 2015 Best All Around Rider and Best All Around Team (BAR/BAT) Competition. The FBRA BAR/BAT is a combination of events hosted across the state by the various promoters who make racing great in Florida. The BAR/BAT is designed to assist riders and teams during sponsorship acquisition as well as give riders a USAC/FBRA ranking to keep the spirit of the sport alive through October. The series is a balanced mix of Criteriums, Road Races, Circuit Races, Time Trials and a Team Time Trial. Similar to USAC’s national rankings, this lets you see where you rank after all your hard work. The rankings system will be administered using the competition ranking module developed by USA Cycling in cooperation with the FBRA for use by all local associations across the country.
