My first race ever is this Sunday, and I just don't think I can do it. 15 miles with tons of log jumps, and rock gardens. The two things I hate! I'm only 13, and the time limit is 3 hours.
Any advice? I just don't think I'm ready to race. For me, how do you think 2 hours and 13 miles is for a brand new technical singletrack is? That's what it was when I went riding last weekend. I guess I should do ok on this? Or atleast get under 3 hours? Never been on this XC course before.
Any tips on what to do when I race? Try and keep a constant speed, or put it all out?
