    Tubular cyclocross tire recommendation?

    I am looking for a pair of 'cross-specific tubular tires to use in New England--all season long--from the dry races in August through the snowy races in December.

    Any specific recommendations? Vittoria? Dugast? Tufo?

    Help a brother out...I've been racing Mud2 clinchers for a few years...I am actually a Cat 3 in cross, despite what my user-name suggests.

    Thanks all!

    You mean Cat. B in Cross?

    Anyway, Dugast typhoon or Rhino's would be at the top of my list. Then Tufo's

    The Rhyno's looked good to me as well--thanks.

    The New England branch of USAC (NEBRA) has installed proper CX numerical categories starting last year, and done away with the A, B, C designations. So, formerly a B, now a 3.

    Really? I knew they were going to but I must have missed that they did. About time, that sh* confused me at the end of the road season.

    Whatever you do, absolutely do not purchase the Challenge Grifo tubular in size 34C.

    Would you care to elaborate?
    There are only 10 types of people in the world; those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    I've loved my Grifo Challenger's (in 32). And I came from Michelin Mud's last year.
