i want to try out a local race coming up. i've only been back on a bike for a couple weeks but still think it would be fun. i did used to mtb a lot and did some local mtb races like 15 years ago(pre suspension era, i'm 35 now) but it's all pretty new again.
there is a beginner class and master35+. i assume i would be in the beginner class(25 min sounds better than 45min right now for sure) but are the beginner class usually all ages? i assume i can contact the organizers but in general are masters classes usually just an older elite/experienced group or a catch all for anyone 35-45?
theres also a clinic for the beginners that morning which should be helpful.
