    You going to the Scott cup Foo? I want to do that one! I have run Minions, front and rear, and high rollers, rear. They work good out there, my main concern is sidewall damage and the EXOs have never let me down.
    NOW.......you and I both know your going to get 15000 conflicting responses! U need to take wheel size, rider weight, rim width, shock setup, riding style, experience, budget, tire pressure, color of bike, political preference, diet and horoscope all into consideration when choosing a tire that so many people dont take into consideration when they start spouting off about their favorite tire!
    All that being said.......I want a sidewall that wont fail, EXOs seem to do that.

    Thibking about it if I can swing it and angle fire.
    Oh yes the important questions.
    Wheel size, no idea I have both and can't decide.
    Experience, I have some, but far from fast.
    Sytle, I crash a fair bit so I would say I ride above my skills.
    Political view, if trump or Hillary win I'm moving to Europe.

    Hopefully that helps.

    I would go with something that rolls quick and is durable on the rear. Maybe Minion Semi Slick?

    On the front I would choose something that is going give corner stability on hard surface (rock). Pick something with a bit lower knob height, maybe a High roller over a Minion.

    When I was down that way a couple of weeks ago it sounded like everybody was moving to Canada.

    The shop I called in Moab for tire advice for this race said Minion rear and High Roller II front seems to be the best/most popular setup.

    I stand corrected. I called the bike shop again this morning because I thought I was mistaken, and I was. They recommend Minion DHF up front and either an Aggressor or High Roller II in the rear. The guy I spoke with said the Aggressor seemed to be a bit faster than the HR II, but both are great choices. Basically, he said anything with a stiff side lug will work great on the Moab rock.

    Hopefully, should be a good time. Need to put the new bike through some race action and see if I want to stick with it the rest of the season or go to the classic 650b Specialized Enduro ( back up)

    Based on the results from last year, it seems you could land at least a top third Expert or just outside of the top half in the Pro race on an SuperFly 100 with Bontrager XR1s.

    ...If you have the legs, skills, and cajones to try, that is.

    Klondike Bluffs is tame and fast enough that I think rolling resistance is a worthwhile consideration.
