Are you racing against him? I hear gatorskins are great if so.

Otherwise GP5000.

I had never heard of the TT, but looking at their website it says it's meant for time trials. That means it's all about low rolling resistance, not cornering traction and not puncture resistance.

If this is a dedicated race set, the Attack/Force combo is ideal (assuming you're against the idea of running tubulars or Vittoria Open Corsas) unless you're doing self-supported racing on unclean roads and need to avoid punctures. GP 5000 what many racers train on, assuming they have a dedicated set of training wheels and save their racing wheels for events.
