unfortunatly i couldnt get any info on what track they are runnin as they dont know themselves yet.... so no footage either.
As for tyres, it pissed down yesterday and i ran a minion front and a swampy rear, the front just about coped with it but a spike would have been better. Went back today with the same tyres on and the trails had dried out quite a lot overnight, loads of grip on all the trials we rode. It depends on the weather this week and on the day, id defo take a spike along just incase it turns out wet on the day!
Not the best info i know but hey ho.. Are you comin down for the weekend or just the Sunday?
We will be sessioning on the Saturday and should get an insight of what track they will use for the race,, they dont usually start taping it out untill later on on Saturday afternoon. agree.gif
