I just made the transition from riding/racing mountain bikes to riding mostly on my road bike. I live in Duluth, Minnesota and i would like to start road racing. Mountain bike races are very popular in the Midwest, but i cant find any road races!

I know it's a long way, but if you happen to be coming this way: In the Chicagoland area:

8/3 Arlington Classic Crit, Arlington Heights (www.arlingtonbikerace.com)
8/4 Wood Dale Crit (www.geocities.com/redlineracingltd/goahead/wood_dalex.html)
8/11 Winfield III Crit (pws.prserv.net/mswinfield/Criterium/criterium_2002.htm)

Fri. nights are citizen night at the Northbrook Velodrome. Great place to practice your sprints and close riding with fewer riders.

Also check out:
Upper Midwest Cycling at http://www.umcycling.com/

WISport at http://www.wisport.org/
These links should get you started.
What about a local club?
