|When? Saturday Feb 24th 1 PM
Where? Gray / Orange EZ -UP TENT Near Reg.
Who? James Webb and YOU
Why? You’ve found yourself at a TMBRA race and you’re not quite sure what you’ve gotten yourself in for.
So, you think you want to try racing but you are not sure of what is involved. What are the rules? What is race etiquette? Why does everyone else look like they know what they’re doing and I don’t?
Do you have questions like these… and more?
Then bring your questions, a chair and an open mind. We should be able to make you feel comfortable about getting out and doing your first race.
Items we will go over:
-Registration, race age, race class, race license
-Race bib, what it is and how to put it on your bike
-Starting and finishing
-Eating and drinking before and during the race
-Different course markings and what they mean
-Passing and being passed
-Results–Preliminary, Final and what you should do if something is not right
If you think of any questions the week before the race, you can email them to James webracinglabs at gmail dot com and we will try to get an answer back to you before race weekend and also make sure we go over it at the clinic.
You can find some good race tips on the TMBRA Rules & Regs page at http://www.tmbra.org/rules.htm
