How do you start at a gate in bmx racing?

On a BMX gate there are 8 places for a rider, called lanes 1 to 8. The metal gate is hinged at the bottom and usually operated by a pneumatic ram. The riders are given a lane number, this is usually picked at random by computer in the motos (heats). Riders try to balance at the gate with the front wheel resting on the gate. The gate has audio instructions which are synchronised with a set of traffic light type lights. The When the start button is pressed the audio says something like ready riders, random start, watch the gate. There is then a short delay of 1 to 3 seconds and the lights light in quick succession along with a beeping sound which takes less than a second and the gate drops. The aim is to get out of the gate as quickly as possible and attempt to be the leading rider around the track. Find your local BMX racing club and have a go, you will love it.
