Yeah, you need them for racing so I think you're better off having something then blowing your A races. We need more details on what other wheelsets you have and the powermeter situation (if any). If you plan to use these to train too, I would avoid tubulars because they're either a pain in your butt or a pain in your LBS' butt AND very expensive from a tire standpoint. If, on the other hand, you use something else to train and do group/team rides, and are only going to be using them to race, man-O-man, there's nothing like stomping on the pedals on tubulars. You would appreciate that as a sprinter. The last thing to consider are the hubs. If you're on 10 Sp., and you think you're going to 11 soon, you may want to try to get an 11sp compatible hub. It will be important going into the future. If you're at 10, and have no plans on going to 11 any time soon (like me) it probably doesn't matter much.
