Transmission????

In HS racing I see a 50-50 split. Why one or the other? I have only raced wide ratio trans bikes. would threr be any benefit to racing a close ratio in the woods?

I know a lot of guys like close ratios in woods, but if there are a lot of snotty downhills that super-low WR first gear could save you some time, energy, and brake fading.

Also, just an observation, but by the time a guy dresses out his WR for racing it might be indistinguishable from a YZ.

Anyway, the close ratio is going to give you the perfect gear for most situations where on the wide ratio you might be "between" gears. It would probably also help getting a good start...
