Googled Mitchell track tyres and found nothing

Cheers for the opinions. In the end, thinking they might be a little more robust, I went for the Diamante Pro Light Roads in case I decide to try an outdoors velo.<br/>

Not really needed, even outdoor tracks are usually nice and clean. They are close enough that it would be hard to tell any difference though anyway. Should be a nice tyre.
