MSR Cresson has a reputation of being hard on tires. M. Sanchez says that they run the hardest tires they can get. The track is low on grip. And they (Sanchez bros.) say that is why you have to run hard tires. I know that it is the only track where I can hear the tires squelling as the bikes go around the corners. Not that I know a lot, but that looks like cold tearing to me. At least that what more knowledgeable people have told me. Some of the experts have told me that tires like that are a sign of poor suspension set up. But what do I know?
Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
