Are the michelin Pro2 races grippy enuff tires for a fairly technical crit? My current crit tires, vittorias, are worn out and I am wundering if the michelins are a good replacement.
That is the only tire I will race on. It never failed me. In all my races it slipped only once, and that was on wet pavement during the Downers Grove race. It slipped and it caught itself allowing me to stay up. Unfortunately, my nerves were shot after that, and I lost my chance on the podium. I lost two places, and I had a comfortable lead with just less than half a mile left in the crit. I finished fourth in the rain.
