Joey Piscitello founded PA Masters Racing Team in 2010. After a successful
run of more than a decade competing as an elite master’s racing
team, the team closed it’s “doors” in 2021.
We remain immensely proud of building a strong community of friends and
athletes who sustained PA Masters over the years. Some of the founding
members include Marty Mrugal, Brian Walton, David Hilton, Tom Rampulla,
David Iglewicz and Matt Perry. Team members included state, national and
world champions, as well as one Olympic medalist. The team was nationally
recognized for their 30 men and women who competed in road, track, cross
and criteriums throughout the season.
While the team roster included many exceptional cyclists, there are five
we will highlight here; Brian Walton won a silver medal at the 1996 Olympics
and is a three-time Olympian. Dana Walton won
seven Master’s World Championship in Track Cycling; Matt Diefenbach won
Masters World Championship in Track Cycling (Portugal 2010); David Iglewicz
competed in Worlds Track Cycling (LA, 2017) and David Gulick competed
in Masters Worlds Track Cycling (Portugal, 2010).
PA Masters supported the cycling community and funded a Juniors Development
Campaign to benefit the urban-based Bicycle Coalition Youth Cycling program.
The team enjoyed many social gatherings over the years, giving members
a chance to relax, connect and socialize off the bike. We remain grateful
to each member of the team for being part of this cycling family.
