Regional Brevet Administrators (RBAs) organize and supervise brevets, flèches, and other randonneur events in their area. If there is no brevet series nearby and you have the necessary skills to organize one, please submit an RBA application [MS Word format - preferred] [PDF - hardcopy only]. Your RUSA handbook has a very useful article about beginning the RBA process and how to design successful events. In addition, the RUSA RBA Liaison will be happy to work with you and answer your questions.
For existing RBAs, the tools, forms, and files below have been created to make preparation for events and processing of results easier. If there are other items that you would like to see provided here, contact the RBA Liaison.
