First time poster here!

Just wondering...how many races did you guys watch before signing up for your first race?

I've watched a couple of other events before - velodrome races, mostly - but have never participated because I didn't want to look like a fool (also, track racing apparently isn't my thing), but I figure if a guy like Ernest Gagnon can cyclocross and have fun, then a guy like me can do it, too.

But first, I'm going to watch my first CX race...100+ miles from home.  (What do I bring - cowbell and what else?)

So how many races?

Also, how did you prepare for your first race?  I commute daily by bike and do bike delivery on certain days, so I know my legs are probably good, but what other muscle groups should I be working over?

I must say it a quite good question at all, and I really found all the above replies very helpfully.
