One goal I have for this year was to enter at least one race, just to see how I do. I wanted to join an actual team, because I thought that would be best for me and my riding. So I started the search on Saturday by sending out emails and posting in Tx. racing specific forums, as of Monday morning I am on my LBS team and possibly racing at the Tour of New Braunfels on Feb. 3rd.
I am extremely nervous about racing so quickly, but I think that I am going to do it. I wll go into it know ing that I will NOT win and most likely come in last place, but it will be an expierence that I will never forget. I am getting nervous just thinking/typing about it. MY first race would be a 30 mile road race that is fairly flat.
