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.
