I don't even think I'm going to panic & bring my sscx as a pit bike like I have in the past when it looks wet. I know this strategy is going to catch up too me sooner or later.
I decided last year it just wasn't worth it to run two dissimilar bikes in cx. until I can lay may hands on a used Ridley that I can set up as a clone of my race bike I'll be gambling with my pit strategy.
Though in the Midwest we truly don't have a lot of mudfests...thank god. It just adds to the expense of a race. Mud specific tires, new cables, new chains & brake pads add up in a hurry.
