You'll see a lot of trials tires on LA-B-to-V. Run 7 lbs. of pressure and you'll be fine. Don't run more than 7 lbs. or you'll ruin the effect of the trials tires.
Use Bridgestone Ultra Heavy Duty Tubes front and back or you'll be sorry! You don't want to get a flat tire on this ride.
The good riders don't seem to have a problem in the sand with this tire.
