Water in the radiator

I race with water in my radiator, an it's going to be 25 degrees tonight. Should I take it out even though I keep it in the garage?

I doubt it would freeze that fast. Put a space heater nearby if you want to be sure.

Is there a benefit in using only water?

If you make "race" in France you have to put water, liquid cooling is forbidden because if you fall, the circuit will be slippery.
You in France we put demineralized water..

The only risk with water is if you the temperature go under 0° it freezes

depending on how often you use the bike i would either add anti freeze when your not using it or drain the water out when it gets cold
