How loyal is Klaas Vantornout to his quiver of Dugast tubular tires? So loyal that the current Belgian cyclocross national champion pays for them himself to the tune of about $2,700 a season. Vantornout says it's the same story for his cross racing peers. No freebies from Dugast.

Check out this video from the crew at the Global Cycling Network where Vantornout runs through all tires, explaining which one he uses for which course and what tire pressure he runs. You'll be amazed at how he goes.
