I'm the opposite: I'll give people a hard time if they _aren't_ in the drops while pulling since it's means they are either slacking or wasting energy.

Don't get the license right now unless you plan to do more than six races -- it'll expire at the end of this calendar year. Just pay the $10 fee at each race you enter.

If you hadn't told me this was a race, I'd have thought it was a charity ride. What's with everyone on the hoods and those guys wearing the jerseys that were flapping around like t-shirts?

Take what you might need, use what you do need. Eat before you're hungry, drink before you're thirsty. If you bonk, you failed to address one of those these issues. Where's the confusion?

Drop some body mass first, then you'll be able to run lower spoke count wheels and save weight both ways. But if you're determined to get them right now, go used.

3. Pace

Ride lots, eat lots, drink lots, and take your time doing it. It's a pretty easy combo once you get it down.

You've already said you'll upgrade anyway, so why spend the money twice?
