First race tomorrow night - advice?

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

3 simple rules:

1) look cool
2) don't die
3) if you do break rule #2, don't break rule #1 in the process.
