I'm considering getting into racing next year (nowhere close to ready right now), but was wondering if you have to be part of a team to enter things like the Fayetteville Stage Race. At the few crits I've seen, it seems like everyone is wearing matching jerseys.
Thanks in advance.

You do not have to join a team; you can race unattached. There will be several unattached racers in Cat5. Go to the Road Bike Racing forum and read the stickied threads; there is a lot of information there.
You might consider doing one of the races late in the season just to get that first race out of the way. Plus, you'll get a better feeling of what you need to do over the winter to be ready for next spring.

No problem. Good luck in your first race.
