Any race is exciting. I’ve been in scores of them and my pulse still pounds at the starting line.

Also, be aware of what is happening behind you, especially when it involves top skaters in your division. Recognize and react quickly to attacks from behind. An attack by one skater may not be a threat (depending on the skater). But a multiple-skater attack increases the chances of a successful breakaway and could leave you in the dust.

Remember that a group is faster than a solo skater, if all other factors are ...
