    i've just started cyclocross racing. I've a pair of fairly tired CX 28 x 700.

    Some people say right pressure is more important than right tyre.

    Michelin Jet looks too smooth to grip on the slopey stuff.

    28s seem a bit thin - what's the best compromise - 30s - 32s ?

    any advice very welcome.

    I am in East of England so most track soil is quite loamy.

    Depends what you want to pay.

    I've got some Conti Twisters which are only £13 each and are OK for general use. My lad rides Schwalbe CX Pro's for training (he races on Dugast Tubs), but the CX's are £25 each. I've heard good reports of Schwalbe Racing Ralphs and Fast Freds.
