I signed up for just my second race on Monday night which was fun.
I joined only a few minutes before the race started so was at the back of the group in the pen which was to be expected, but I was also facing away from the start. I stayed like that until the start of the race when I took a wide arc to turn round which meant having to put in a fair amount of effort to catch even the back of the pack and absolutely no chance to get with one of the front few groups.
Did this happen because of something that I did, or did wrong, or is it some sort of bug? If something I did I’d like to make sure I don’t do it again in future.
