Where to begin?Russ
Aug 9, 2001 10:02 AM

I'm really clueless about road racing and looking for some information on the basics. I've been in a few mountain bike races and I'm trainining for my first triathlon (in Sept).

From what I can tell road racing is a whole different world from mtb racing. There seems to be a lot of formality, many un-written rules, a lot of tactics, issues with points/scoring, even a lot of jargon.

Where would someone like me get some basic info on all of this? I'm not looking to start road racing anytime soon, but I can see myself wanting to try it out down the road.

Any web sites or books that help explain the basics?

Thanks in advance,
