I'm 14 and have a love for cycling, I really want to enter a race. I live in northern Michigan but my family does a lot of traveling and will drive long distances. Something I can enter with my trek 7.3 fx hybrid of course. I want to race around 50ish miles. THANKS

This website might be of some help: http://www.mbra.org
You might also look at mountain-bike races over easy terrain. Locally there is a "Tour da Woods" race each year that is 30 miles from Chatham to Munising. Most of that is over old two-track. Some is on gravel road. A very small amount is singletrack, but it's smooth singletrack that is easily within the limits of what your Trek can handle.
I really am not up on the road racing scene in Michigan, but mmba.org is a good source for mountain-biking info.

Ah, just remembered. There is a triathlon in Grand Marais each your that allows three-person teems. Last year I did the bike portion (on a Salsa Fargo!) while my teammates did the swimming and the running. If you find a friend who is a swimmer, and another who is a runner, you could look into a race like that.
