This Saturday I will be doing my first bike race ever. Quite nervous about it. Any advice or suggestions are most welcome. One person told me to start at the back, less dangerous that way. Another said start at the front. This race is in the Novice category and is 31 kilometres.
I am particularly concerned about the turns as I am weak at that. Only been cycling for 18 months. I do have some experience in a pace line at a fast pace.
