    how to get into racing?

    After riding road bikes for a couple years i have been on the trails recently and want to try an amatuer race or soemthing for some fun competition. Was curious as how to find MTB races to enter. I am in Austin, Texas if that helps any.

    my suggestion would be to go to a MTB oriented LBS and ask them about a local race series. Show up and kill it.

    or maybe look into a local MTB association. They usually hold events/races
