Hey, I've never raced before, but I'm looking at making the New Britain Crit on July 12 my first race. Obviously I've got some questions, so hopefully you guys can help me out.
1)who has been to this event? Think its good for a first time racer? How is the course?
2)Do I need to have a USAC license to race?
3)The cat 5 race is at 8, the juniors is at 12:30, I can do both, right?
4)What exactly is junior gearing, and do I need to run junior gearing in the Cat 5 race?
5)If I don't preregister, how early should I expect to get there to make the 8am cat 5 start?
I think thats it for now, thanks for all the help!
