If you finish 20th or 120th you still did good

you've been on 40 mile rides before and you've been on 2 hour rides before
you've been on easy rides before and you've been on hard rides before
This is just a combination of all of those in 1 ride

You will have some very hard sections to go through
Just take your time in these sections don't hurt yourself or the bike
Your goal is to 1st have fun and 2nd finish your 1st race
As long as your bike holds up you will be able to do it
yeah I really dont care where I finish, as long as I finish. Itll be a blast... im sure
