    One has to say, you’ve picked the wrong motorsport to compare to. Pirelli are the supplier to the top class of the WRC (World Rally Championship) which is mostly held on gravel stages, though snow/ice & Tarmac events are also seen. They even use Scorpion tyres….

    Yup. If MTB handled the wet as badly as F1 did at Spa then they’d never sell another bike tyre again.
    There again Pirelli F1 has their depot in Didcot so I suppose it won’t be that arduous…
