So I've been improving a lot this season (my second), but one area where I'm still pretty mediocre is starts. The funny thing is I think I would start much better if I had a callup, but I won't get one until I improve my results. For me that means improving my starts. I tend to come on stronger as the race goes on, but I always miss the selection at the beginning.
Starting at the edge has helped as it seems like a lot of the chaos happens in the middle, but I still get spooked. I'm definitely not the sprinter type physically or otherwise.
Maybe I give up too early too. Seems like I sort of accept my fate after the first corner.
Any tips would be appreciated.
