First, it is more wobbly, and this is preferable. Instability means quicker reactions when needed. It's also more aero and more powerful. You should learn to sprint from the drops if you want to be competitive.
Here's me (left, drops) getting an inch on a guy because he was sprinting in the hoods. I started 4 bikes behind this guy, and he was lead out by a teammate:
...and here's Lance (drops) beating Dominguez (hoods) in a sprint. For the record, Lance is not
a sprinter, and Dominguez is supposed to be. These days, he is sprinting from the (edit) drops
, and is winning much more...
