Another Pre-Potential First Race Thread

I started cycling in March. I really want to try racing before the year ends. I want to do the Bryan Park Race in Richmond VA this Sunday. Does anyone have any good information that is specific to this race?

Thank you.

Disclaimer: Non-specific information also appreciated although I am aware of the search function.

I've never done it, but I understand it to be a good first race environment on a relatively safe, non-technical, not very selective course. lots of races are held in bryan's park so the promoters have that place figured out for good organization. go for it and have fun!

'Pre-potential first race thread'?

Just STFU, race your friggin bike, and come back here and let us know how it went already. It's amateur bike racing, not natural childbirth.

thanks MDcatV. i appreciate the info.

pcad:
i'm new at this. i know you started before the internet, but i dont know any locals that have this information and this is my best resource. I WILL race my "friggin bike" and i might be less inclined to let you know how it went now.

actually, thanks for the motivation. i know its your responsibility to start an arguement in every thread on BF and you're just doing your job. i will report soon.
