Getting started at the beginning of a race is very important! If you do not get a good WHOLE SHOT you might not be able to recover and catch back up with the other racers in your race.
Steps on getting a good start!
* Make sure your tire is lined up exactly where it needs to be (touching the starting gate)
* Pull the clutch in and switch into first gear but hold the clutch down (pull it back and hold it)
* When the gates drop make sure you release the clutch slowly and give it throttle (just enough to get moving)
but make sure you are leaning forward where your bike does not jump up on you
*Then as soon as you start of go up a gear and keep on going!
* You just started a motocross race!
