One, if not the most, important part of any motorcycle race is the start. It rains all of the time up here in Seattle, so we end up racing indoors on Arenacross style tracks. The start is everything when you only have five laps to show what you’ve got! Big jumps - no problem, big whoops- got it, corner speed – good. Starts uhm… they needed work. After rounding the first turn mid pack more than a few times this winter, I went looking for help.
