We recommend that you get your bike fully tuned up & new tires put on 2 weeks before raceday. You’re spending countless hours training your body, then also put in some time to prepare your bike. There is no worse feeling than getting a mechanical in the race and standing on the side of the road while other riders are passing you by.
