    Austin Rattler Trail Conditions

    I'll be driving out from Colorado for the Austin Rattler and I'm trying to decide what tires to race on. The forecast is showing a high chance of rain Mon night through Thurs morning before Saturday's race.

    How muddy does it tend to get out at the Rocky Hill Ranch? Will it be bad enough to want slower rolling mud tires (Forekaster) or could I get away with faster rolling tires (RocketRon/RacingRalph?)

    Thanks!

    If its muddy, there will only be a few short sections with bad mud. Most of the trail sheds rain quickly. The bad sections will be red clay, so it sticks to everything when wet. Id run the RRs there.
