So I did my first circuit race today - 6 laps at 6 miles per lap in the 4/5. Unbeknown to me and a few other newbies to circuit racing, there was not a neutral start like there is in road races. Fought like hell to get back into the peloton but couldn't quite get there and ended up latching onto a group for 4 laps until I attacked and broke away with someone else and we rolled in together a couple of minutes behind the peloton.
Question I have is other than the not having a neutral start, are there any other differences between a circuit race and road race?
Plan to do another one next weekend and staying with the pack from the on-set but want to know what else to be on the lookout for.
