Austin Race Scene

Might be relocating to the Austin area, can anyone tell me what the local race scene is like? I'm coming from Los Angeles, so I'm pretty used to the business park crit set up. Hopefully there are more traditional road races? Thanks for any help.

The Austin race scene is in one word Awesome. The season is pretty much Jan through June. Then Sept through Nov and we have a kick arse cross scene. The first part of the season is RR's nearly every weekend , with some weekends having two RR's. We have a weekly crit series that starts up after daylight savings time and that is held on a very open go-kart track. The racers here are on par with the So Cal boys for the most part. The weekly Tues nighter is always packed and fast, and the Sat morning ATC ride is the hard core training ride. I'm leaving for LA in two weeks to move back, the racing here is much better than SoCal,

Never raced in SoCal, but I can confirm EDR's points on the Austin racing scene -- it's great!
