I've signed up for the Wilderness 101 event having never ridden that area before. The long range, leading up to the day is looking like a lot of rain. How does this area drain, does it dry out quickly or is it going to be a greasy, slippery race of attrition? Should I be putting on more aggressive tires or sticking with the Specialized FastTrack 2.0?

Have plenty of experience with this type of racing around my local region (Ontario, Canada) but have never ridden south PA.

From what I have read, the race is a lot of road, fire road, double track climbing with some gnarly descents, True?

Thanks in advance
