    46t chainring

    Well my cross bike is nicer then my way to big road bike so I will be racing a road race on it this weekend.

    You guys think 46t will be big enough?

    And my main question is how many gears will I need to block out, if any? 46x12?

    A 46 x 13 will allow you to meet junior gearing*, I raced that last year.
    You would need to block out the 12t cog in the rear.

    *this is assuming that you are using 700c wheels, and are in the USA.

    Yep, 46x13 is a great gear, and more than enough. You probably don't need that 12 for CX either.
