A word of advice to someone doing their first match sprints: Don't be clever. Chances are that your opponent won't know how to react and you guys may make a mess.

Just:
- Ride it clean
- Keep an eye on your opponent.
- Wait for the sprint to engage (which usually happens as a Pavlovian response to the bell for the final lap)
- If you are the lead rider: Hold your line.
- If you are the passing rider: Pass cleanly without getting too close to your opponent.
