Take the opportunity to pre-ride the course. This will increase your confidence and help you note which corners can be taken with speed and which require early braking.
A big first-time mistake is to go too hard right away. Of course it’s a race, but make sure you can hold your pace for the 20,30 or 40 minutes that you are racing.
Bring your cowbells, if you have them and cheer on the other racers when you’re not racing.

Hydration and Nutrition
Drinking during the race can be difficult, so plan to drink prior to racing and after racing.
Its usually not a good idea to eat right before a race, usually eating 1.5-2 hours before is a good rule of thumb. It really depends how hard you race.
