And short courses. Being only for mtb tubulars, I'm not sure I'd be trusting these for a 50 or 100km enduro.

Do you reckon they'll ever allow trail bikes on course for "neutral service" ? ;)

There's at least 3 people in Sydney racing (xc and enduros) on mtb tubulars and I have couple of friends that regularly hit up the trails on their CX tubs (one having raced the Highland Fling on them)

Are they using Stan's No flats? I was always wondering if I can use Stans on Tubulars...

2,300 Euro, OUCH! That said you have to wonder how much the prototype Mavic Crossmax Ultimates will cost when they eventually reach production...
