I run three different clinchers depending on the conditions. Tire choice and pressure can make a huge difference in races. I have the tires mounted on different wheelsets and get to the race venue early enough to allow enough time to test the tires while warming up
I use Mud2's for muddy conditions. Last year in a race with some loose gravel I fell on the straights with the Mud2's due to there being no tread/lugs on the sides. With hind sight the muddy sections were not significant enough to justify the loss of traction on gravel and side grades.
I have a pr
of Conti's with file treads for hard packed surfaces and grass. Mostly good for early season and frozen ground.
I use the Bontrager tires that came with my XO1 Trek for general riding and training
