I've gotten a few rides in on my Captain CX Pros so far and I like what I'm feeling so far. I'm running the tires at about 35lbs PSI front and rear, they are great for the tame singletrack near home. They shed mud fairly easily and they roll fast enough on pavement as well as hardpack. I've also taken them out on some short limestone trail rides and they hold their own there as well. I've taken some tight turns at speed and climbed up a couple of short steep hills with no issues. I think that they'd serve someone very well in a CX race.
