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

Looks like most of the TX (USAC) season is gone...
Have fun!
