    Michy Comp 16 2.5 for DHill = Good in the mud and also hooks up on the rocks.

    The last time I went to 7 Springs, I threw on some Maxxis Swampthings. They were great in the mud, and handled well on the rocks. I've also ridden these tires frequently at Laurel Mountain which is similar terrain.

    Sweet, I was about to ask the locals for some info too. What's the terrain like, specifically what can be expected in the DH/DS courses. How "hard-tailable" are the courses? Sounds like Mud is a good possibility? Any info might help prevent my premature death in a few days. Hovercraft, who are you riding for? I'll be making the drive from North Dakota, a long ass way for one or two races.....So I'm gonna do them all
