As the title suggests I am thinking about trying my first race on the 21st of this month in Culpeper VA. http://www.fredevents.org/battle_at_burke.htm Anyone else planning to race here or raced here in the past? I have not ridden the trail so im kinda nervous and not sure what to expect. My question is what are some of the things i should be training for being that i have never raced before? Also is there particular things i should be doing, other than riding, to help me prepare for the race? Thanks everyone for all the help!
