A first race , and then again a first road race of 110kms?!?
Well, I think you might have a hard day of it (to put it politely) if everyone else are hardened categorized racing guys.
Personally, I would have recommended doing something like closed circuit crits of about 40 to 60 minutes duration just to get used to racing in close quarters to start with...
can you get your money back?

Are you sure it is a race?

Sportive perhaps?

He's in Thailand. Probably allowed to call it a race even if it isn't really.

If it's your first ever race, just aim to finish it! And considering how long it is, that would be impressive in itself to most normal people!

I expect it's a sportive - a 110k 'beginners' race wouldn't have many finishers
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
