i just bought 773's, im racing on saturday on a course with hardpack jumps, some hardpack areas and some soft corners

the reason i bought these tires is because everywhere around here i ride is sand

i want to know what the tires will act like on saturday night if anyone can throw some input in here please

thank you

I used a set on my 426 when they first came out. The track I ride on, goes from really muddy to concrete(hardpack). They won't impress you with their ability to grip the hardpack( grabbing a handfull while leaned over might put you on your head), but they'll get you through to the next muddy section.
