I'm a beginner road rider. I bought a road bike in the spring of last year. It's an entry level bike but I've upgraded it to mostly 105 stuff. I raced my mtn bike this past summer for the first time. I entered 3 races and finished in the top half or better at all of them. I'm going to enter more this summer. I was thinking today while on the trainer that I should perhaps enter in the beginner class at one of the local road races(mostly crits). I've never been to any of the local road races so I don't know what to expect. But I figure I'll never know if I don't try. So my question is, is there any reason to not enter? What should I expect from my first crit?
