There are all sorts of races, although that may be the wrong bike for a lot of them. I've read of the fixed-gear people having alley cat races. Read the article on wikopedia for more info there. There are regular road races and criteriums, and anyone can buy their license and start in there- check the Road Cycling and Road Cycling Racing forums for more info. Some of the charity rides are theoretically races, although they are not sanctioned by the racing people, and 90% of the participants aren't racing anybody. If you have a velodrome near you, that's another racing option, particularly with a fixed gear. Triathlons seem to be popular if you can swim and run. There are time trial events, have one coming up here in Texas in a couple of weeks, and it's open to anyone. And, like you say, the cyclocross.
