What do the pros use for wet crit or wet hilly road races with nasty corners? It's monsoon season in Georgia and I just don't feel comfortable on my Conti 1000s in the rain.

stay away from Axial pros and axial races, they suck in the wet! I've been on some Panaracer Stradius Extremes for about 6 weeks and raced them in the wet last week. They seemed to do just fine, and for the price, you can't beat 'em! I really think they are a good tire!
Yeah, I've read nice things about the Panaracer Extremes. [nm]niteschaos
