    I want to get into racing.

    Hi all I'm pretty new to cycling, and have fallen in love with it. I recently purchased the 2014 Trek Domane 2.0 and it's treating me very well thus far. I'm 23 and have grown up playing sports, so I am a fairly competitive guy and am in rather good shape. I just have a few questions. 1) I am interested in maybe participating in racing down the road when I become more comfortable with riding. I'm not too sure where to start though. Can someone point me to some common cycling programs? Also, if I do get into racing, would the Trek Domane 2.0 do well in racing conditions? Should I start out by doing charity rides? groups?

    Location? Country and state (if in the US) greatly affects what's available to future racers.

    Also, not that you'd know it, but Juniors is for under 18. You can post in the regular "33" racing forum, you'll get more views and responses there.

    Your bike should be fine.

    Your bike should be I'm in California, specifically in Sonoma county and San Luis Obispo County. And thanks for the pointer, I'll give the 33 racing a whirl

    ^ I think there's a BFer that's literally in SLO so you'll be good. Lots of races and such out in CA.
