Race more is good advice.
He said he was tentative. Did you see where he caused any risk to others?
Going back to old posts my comment was that having elite road cat 1/pro riders start track Cat 4/5 was silly. They may not know the skills, but in cat 4/5 they just TT.

A good rider just watches and learns - they are tentative.

What is the point in not moving to at least a Cat 2 to learn how to race.
Cat 1/ pro starting with cat 4/5 is not silly. If they tt the race, they are doing it wrong. If they can tt to win, they should be more than able to sit in and win the sprints. It would also be way easier to learn how to count points in the points race if you're faster than everyone. It's silly to try and learn that doing one of your first mass start races at a national level against people who already went through the process.
