Road bars for practicing 500M starts?

I live out in the boonies and can't regularly work out at the track. Outdoors, I have flat, empty spaces to practice starts, but I bruise my wrists with my current bars. I know there were road bars that didn't give me that problem back when I raced three decades ago. Do any of you know of road bars bent so they won't interfere with my wrists?

This is even more important now, during trainer season. I just picked up an H2 direct-drive trainer and found that it is pretty good for start practice. But, as discussed in a recent thread, the H2 won't accept track-bike dropouts; the stays are too narrow. So I'm trying to adapt my road bike to something more like the way my track bike is set up.

Thank you,
