Get into the drops. This”ll help balance your weight, improve traction, increases aerodynamics and puts you in a position to throw the bike over the line.
Rise out of the saddle.. Standing up lets you put all your weight into propelling yourself forward, leveraging gravity for maximum power into your pedals.
Flatten your back. Most of your energy in a sprint is in fighting air resistance. So get low and aero.
Keep your chin up and your eyes forward. This is not the time to be staring at the bike stem. You need to be hyper-aware of your surroundings and potential hazards up the road.. Head up and forward, and look where you’re going.
