    Weeping Willow XC Race

    What are people planning to run for tires for this Sunday's race. Not really sure what to run with all this rain.

    Thanks,


    John

    Can't help with tire selection but I was riding there yesterday (Thursday) and it was pretty greasy. Ground is wet, obviously so whatever works for you on wet roots and off camber trails should work

    Hard to believe 400 riders expected and no one on here.

    Thanks for the info!

    The parts for my race bike never came in so I'm not going to make it this year. I was planning on using Racing Ralph 2.25's. I would expect the course to be very slick with puddles and roots and such but not any clumping mud. I'm not sure any tire would be ideal for what the conditions will be like.

    Although I think I'm the only rider left still running these, the good ol' Panaracer Dart/Smoke combo worked great for me in the slop (I pre-rode the course Wednesday night, and these tires were just as good in the really sloppy stuff if you recall Wednesday's weather). The best part, they weigh 560g, you can usually find them on sale for $25, and they work great tubeless.
    I can barely get my mouth around it.

    I raced on Michelin Dry2's set up tubeless and had zero traction issues. I think its better to run what you are comfortable on than to overthink the tire selection.
