Road racing rookie/ year planification

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Road racing rookie/ year planification

How many races do you plan on doing during a year? Do you do as many as your local/ regionnal calendar allows or you will pick the one you think you have chances at placing well? If Lance is out there, no need to reply, I know which one you are doing already... . Do you diversify also with criteriums, hill climb, time trials, and road races? Or you focus on one event? Thanks, Kati
(I am leaving on a cross Canada in 6 days now, and when I come back will make planification for next year, might do a few remaining crits, and a time trial if I feel like it but my focus will be for next year.)

i don't really plan out my racing schedule. i've done 11 this year. the closest thing i came to having a plan was something like:

spring: collegiate road
summer: track
fall: collegiate mountain

since i more than likely won't be returning to school in the fall, after the summer is over i haven't really got much on my plate.
