They are not as expensive as i thought though.

Racing is expensive. Even at the amateur level. They say to factor the costs by adding up all your tools, equipment, bike, protective gear, hauling equipment, etc... and throw it off a cliff. Could you deal with that loss?

Its very easy to lose the front end of a 'not that expensive' racebike and send it tumbling down the track, trashing every piece of it. Done that.

It is fun, though. Where else can you go as fast as you and your equipment can go, racing head to head against other people?

But be prepared for the costs. Good protective gear alone will set you back at least $2k. Tires every other weekend... or every weekend if you race a modern 600 or more. Replacement parts, time to work on the bike, etc...
