I only want to know wich tubulars section you use for which condition ?
and do you ride the biggest or the smaller tubulars possible for muddy conditions ?
I look at pro in beautiful races like superprestige and the main section used is 32 even for very light runner as Gadret !!! I am not in every races but I have never seen runner with 28 tubulars and you ?
Why we scarcely see runner with white Dugast tubulars for which conditions are they made ?
Of course it must be a question of feeling but I only want to know main principles to apply !!!
Thanks a lot for your help.

My best wheels have 32s on them, as that's a nice size for all conditions. My other wheels have 30s. I had some 34s for bad mud, but sold them off. I also used a set of Diamond Tread 28s for really hard packed fast courses, they SCREAMED on the pavement sections.

I learned one thing in Belgium last winter. Use wide tires for a predominantly sandy course. I generally ran a 34 in the mud courses. Dugast tubulars or Schwalbe's clinchers. Hope this helps. Todd
