race report: cross crusade 2011/PIR-Pro Paddock

Today was my last race of the year. It was a very good way to end my season.

The rains of yesterday delivered the mud we'd waited for all season. It wasn'y especially wet or gloppy, and I didn't get a whole ton of it on me or my bike; but it was thick and deep enough in spots to slow everyone down and force many off their bikes on runups most could've ridden in dry weather and so it was good enough.

The course was a modified -- some said watered down -- version of the USGP…

What went wrong:

HELP! Tecnique and tire traction

Johnny Newb here and having a tough time washing front wheel out in muddy corners - more trouble than the other newbs. I realize that this is a technique problem, BUT what tire can I use in the front to help the cause. I spend each race passing several riders in staight sections only to watch them pass me as I am re-mounting after going down, over and over again.

I am trying to slow up heading into the corner with excels coming out, pedaling threw the corner as much as possible,…
