New tire sponsor for the remainder of 09 and the 2010 MTB season. This is great news since I already use Michelin tires on both my mtb and cross bikes. After switching to them early this year I wont use anything else. Only one flat all year and that was a 16d nail that went in one side and out the other. I got some good advice when I was told that its better to get to the finish line than save a few grams on tires.
