One: The Maxxis Ikon sucks in deep mud;
Two: Mud and 2.2" tires don't mix on the Specialized Epic's rear;
Three: Don't race when sick.
As a result of points One and Two (above), I got a few tire tips from the pros and I'll be switching the Ikon 2.2 (front/rear) to the Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.1 on the rear, and the Schwalbe Rocket Ron 2.25 on the front for the coming wet months.
