Barrier technique - HELP!Bridgestoner

I wanna hear from some of you Pro's out there. Please give me a step by step (pun) from dismount to mount.

How fast do you go into the barrier? At what point do you disengage your left pedal? Where is your left crank arm when you bring your right leg though? How many steps before you hurdle? Which leg goes over first? Same leg on the next?

Last week I was in 3rd coming into the barriers and sure enough I crashed in front of 30 more riders, and of course, munched my new wheel. So this week I've been practicing but I'm in need of perfect advice so as not to compound and confound my problems with more ignorant bad habits.

All you Elite guys,please help.
