i've tried the Hutchinson in a non-race situation with my tubulars (with a valve extender) but it wouldn't seal well and all the goop squirting out the side of the valve. I did seal the tire later with Stan's and it seemed to work.
I have carried the Hutchinson stuff in mtb races, but I don't know of anyone who does it in cross. but, I actually think it could be a good idea if you think a flat is likely. who else makes compressed sealant?
as Capital Cross on sunday I flatted my front tubbie, and rode almost a full lap to the pit to change bikes. but I lost a lot of spots, and it was pretty hairy on turns.
there were actually 2 pits- if I had wheels in the 2nd pit, that could have helped...
