Rode around 18km of the trails yesterday and had a ball. It was raining lightly and getting a bit dark by the time I got to ride so missed out on more of the trail. For the tyre wheenies I was running Maxxis Advantages on the 26er and they hooked up fine. If I was on the 29er it would have been an Ignitor up front with a Crosssmax on the back, but really you can get away with pretty much anything in this country. Really hoping the roster is kind to me this year.
