Not knowing too much about the sport, I imagine getting traction on the ice is the limiting factor on how fast you can accelerate. You need to push exactly as hard as you have traction for, but no more. Similar to starting a car race where you don't actually want the tires to spin. So you're right on that edge, especially on the first step.

so basically there's a huge amount of calculating that goes at the start and the event's ice conditions may be very different?

I'm not sure that it's ice conditions or anything like that, it might just be he took a risk giving it just that little bit more. If it paid off he'd have a better start and we wouldn't be laughing at him or shusky or poland in general.
