Where on earth would you like to start ?

Advice specific to a certain circuit ?
Advice on what the format of the day is ?
Advice on gearing for a specific bike on a circuit ?

Where do we begin ?

ok, anything around the 31psi front and rear in nice warm conditions is spot on. a little cooler etc, maybe 33 or so....

Love the tyre pressure advice.......in the briefing I may advise to consider dropping under certain conditions, so a DSC member and owner of very flashy bike asked me to drop his pressures after his first session, which I'm happy to do, only his front is reading 16!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pump please matron

PS, he'd ridden to the circuit like that
