Avatar not moving at start of race

I entered a Crit City Race. When the count down finished the avatar did not move. I did a 10 minute warm up in Watopia prior to and then switched to enter the event with a 15 minute count down. When the count down finished everyone left the starting gate except me. I quit the race and then hit the back button and the avatar works. This has happened several times. Any suggestions.

Please provide a complete rundown of your set up.

We’re you pedalling in the pen? Some trainers will go to sleep after awhile
