    i know the season ended and i didn't get a chance to race so I was wondering when could I expect to compete in an organized road race again?

    Depends where you live. I live in Florida, USA. We start with training crits in January, then start with bigger stuff in February.

    Go further north and they start up anywhere from March to May depending on when the snow is "mostly" melted. I used to do races in Belgium with snow falling, quite fun actually.

    You wanna race in Nov and Dec, head for the southern hemisphere.

    Don't be too eager to get going! The season can get very long if you live in a warm climate. If you do plan to do some cyclocross or mtb races, then build in some mid-season breaks to help stave off late season burnout.

    Depends where you are in the world : European/USA season finishes in a few weeks time for road racing.
    If you're really bitten by the bug - Australia/New Zealand/Far East season is getting in to full swing just about now !

    HEY! Pay attention!

    This coming weekend is the Paris Tours.

    The following weekend is the GIRO DI LOMBARDIA.

    Then, only after having followed those two, are you allowed to begin thinking about next year! :D

    Don't forget that now, not the start of the racing season, is the time to join a team if you are interested in it.
