I found it difficult to spin at the start and found out later that I was in the big front ring!?! I had to stop because my back wheel was rubbing and I had to loosen it.

Start in the small front ring. Test ride the bike before the race!!!!!

Hey, nice job racing in the heat.  I basically did the same thing you did at T2.
