So I am new to the sport. I am highly interested in doing some downhill racing, any recommendations? Any good way to jump into it? I'm such a noob, help!

Thanks in advance!

Do they have many mountains in Texas?? First I'd search to see if there are any bike shops in the area that sell/service DH and freeride bikes. If there are, go there and talk to them and see if they know of a race series, sponsor someone who races or if there is anyone else shopping ask them what the deal is about racing in the area. My guess is that there isn't much in texas but try googling it also and see what comes up. I think the Fontana series is starting up again for the winter so if you don't mind traveling it would be a good track to get started on from what I see/hear.
