1. Practice, practice, practice!
Practice makes perfect. So make sure you include in your training sessions
2. Use elastic laces
Easy to slip on and not have to fuss about with laces. Just make sure they are not too loose or too tight
3. Set up your station so you have easy access to everything
Have your shoes, socks, helmet, race number and what ever else you need to change and be ready for the rest of the race set up and ready to go. Make sure your nutrition is secure and easily accessible
