Race Registration Sites

I've been getting into road racing more and I've noticed that there are lots of different sites for registration. For example, it seems like in the midwest, a lot of races use truesport, but back in the NY metro area, most races use bikereg. I guess my question is, what are the most popular sites that I should keep my eye on?

Keep an eye on the USAC events pages as that should have most, if not all, of your races (https://www.usacycling.org/events/?state=IN).

Also, your local association should have a schedule with races and links, too. For example, in NorCal, we fall under the NCNCA and they have a list of races here: Events | Northern California Nevada Cycling Association

Does your local association and your local promoter(s) have websites with constantly updated calendars?
That would be your best option

You're going to figure out what the best system for your area is. Any good local association should at least keep a centralized, regularly updated calendar on their website; unfortunately, some are not so good. Of the local associations I have experience with, TBRA (Tennessee) and GABRA (Georgia) are pretty damn good, NEBRA (New England) is okay, LAMBRA (LA/MS) is iffy, and ABRA (AL) is worse than useless. For example. In NEBRA, it's not a big deal that the local association website isn't great, because pretty much everything up here is on BikeReg, which can work as sort of an unofficial local calendar.

I was surprised to learn, when I moved to Tennessee, how regionalized race registration is; you wouldn't expect physical location to matter for online registration, but apparently it does. So, as I mentioned, here in New England, you register for almost everything on bikereg.com. Whereas, in Tennessee, there were a few different websites in use, but with the advent of USA Cycling's in-house online reg system, pretty much every race uses that - but before that happened, it still wasn't a big deal, because TBRA's website and race calendar are and were excellent and made it easy to find out what races were happening in the state. And so on. You're going to have to look and ask around and figure out what's best for the regions you're playing in.

Around here, some events use the USAC registration system while others use Pre-Reg.com or Bikereg.

But, all of the races are on our local association calendar.
