What tire preasure everyone run?
The race will be in farmland & woods from what I understand.
We practiced at Rock Creek saturday, which is the same conditions, the only problem I had, the rear end would swing wide, hardpack slick mud the tire would break loose and spin out & around.
I'm thinking tire presure is about the only thing I can do to adjust for that, sugestions?
Tires are new, bike is ready, I'm not sure what to expect as far as jumps, I probably can soften up comp clickers front & rear

the atv's love sliding around the corners, there were a few berms to have fun in, but usually so wide that it was faster to go slower on the inside
I figured the place would be dry, it was a mudfest
good practice though
what type of race is perry? I heard it's pasture & woods, with at least one place I can enjoy the WR's horsepower & top end
I bought spare gloves, I may change gloves after the first lap, depends on if I'm in a group and if I'm dry
I really hate ruts, for some reason I always tense up and pull on the bars, always pulling to the right
