I gave my evidence long ago with video and links.
Local level riders?
Where did I say that? The winners were International, as were the owners of the tyres, including the winners 2 times, I knew the tyre pressure for. Belgium was just the venue. PR = Paris Roubaix (France) the other venue. I don't have pictures with pressure gauges.
What level would you like?
So what pressure do you think they are actually using in clinchers at the top level clinchers ever race? Not what is best, but what they actually pump them to.
Here is a picture of a 25mm, silk, no sidewall coating, record tread FMB Francois made for me. What pressure do you think he suggests a 63kg rider should use on smooth roads?
In the *what should be done* category - these can be run lower psi as the cost of flex is so low. But most tyres have a more severe penalty for casing flex - so the pressure should be higher to minimize it.
To the OP @115kg - 130psi - I don't think its an issue.
