Make sure when the gate drops you use 2nd gear. My first race ever I started in 1st and looped out into my friend when the gate dropped. We're both on the ground but his bike didn't stall so he only picked it up. Very embarrassing when your 10ft out of the gate still kicking your bike and a minute behind...

I got the holeshot on my first gate start. Wrecked in the fourth corner cause I was so nervous and found myself last. Ended up 2nd or 3rd. 24 years later I still can't buy a holeshot.
