I currently use Vittoria Corsa CX, but I know they are not the fastest tub for race day. I was looking at the Crono or the Conti Podium TT.

Just wondered if anyone has experience of these tubs or can recommend a good race day alternative.

The CX test fast very often (though there seem to be outliers when tested by a german mag). Certainly faster than the Podium. See here, although it's about older versions of the tyre viewtopic.php?f=3&t=114537 .
Facing the same question at the moment, running 22mm SCs, pondering to glue up 25mm SC or CX for a TT, at least for the rear.

Edit: here's another thread with some info viewtopic.php?f=3&t=116471

Podiums never seemed quick for me but they are fairly bullet proof.
Gone through a few corsa cx's fairly quickly, but now on Schwalbe TT's. Not had long enough to give a proper evaluation though.

Not sure if you're planning on using a disc wheel, but you might encounter problems with the new corsa valves.
