My first racing experience was last season. Had such a great time that I am back for more.
In my home province of Quebec, there isn't that many participants. So as a beginner, I was lumped in with Master A / Vet A (age group really 30-39 as far as I know) & fought it out for 1hr + 1 lap. Still, many of the riders shouted words of encouragement as I struggled along my merry way.
So, from one beginner to another, go out, keep an open mind, & have fun!
