    Marymoor race tire selection?

    How's the track surface at Marymoor? Will Pista Evos stand up to a couple weekends of racing or should I opt for a bit more durable and use Crono CS?

    TIA

    I have managed a full year on the evo Pista with the only issues being rocks and glass. The apron and warmup circle get some stray rocks so watch out for that and it is workable. The glass situation has been ok so far this year. The glass is usually from beer bottles over the winter so it is worse at the beginning of the year.
    That said I have Crono tires on after nicking/popping 2 Pistas last year after only losing 1 in the prior 4 years.

    eh, it seems a bit better than the last couple years, but being outdoor there's no certainty.
    I'd run something a bit more durable- but I've seen folks make Pista Evo and Dugast silks last the year... they just don't ride the apron and don't ride much on the warmup circle.
