I've decided to do my first race, Ive been training hard... and I think I can handle a small race. The only thing is, I dont understand exactly what I'm doing.. lol. First off this is my Race. I dont understand what the Distance slot means (ill be racing as citizen) 30min +2? Any one give me a definition on that? What should I do to prepare myself for this, I've never really experienced a race before, so I dont really know what drafting feels like to be honest. Ive ridden in a group before, but never in a race. There prob. wont be many people at this race, espeically in my category. I really wont have a great race bike, But Im not out to win, Im out for the experience. Im looking for experience that will help me ride on a college team in a year. Ive read all the other post about preperation, so I think I have a good grasp on that. Thanks for everyones help.
