    Hi,

    I'm new to the sport and I wonder if you can help me. I have ridden plenty about 15 yrs ago. I was between age 10-15. I've always been athletic. I currently snowboard (hard), ski and participate in other sports. I'm about to sign up for a Trail Riding series - competition.

    The levels are Beginner, Sport and Expert. I have some natural talent and I'm afraid that the beginner group might be "too much of a beginner" trail race. Would you advise the "Sport" level? Could I compete and complete this even at a slow pace?

    One concern is if a Sports level has man-made technical obstacles. Is this usually the case?

    Baby steps . I took a look at the time splits in the different classes and the sport class is at least 21 minutes faster per lap than the beginner class and that with a sport lap time of 25 minutes. You might also notice that the beginners do 1 lap and the sports do 2. Baby steps . Besides if you win you might get a little trophy, and if you start in the sport class it looks like it could be a while before you see any silverware
