Looks like I have been doing secret training as my racing wheels only have conti ultra gatorskin tyres which are winter tyres. ~(bought them off ebay!)
Tomorrow I am fitting conti GP4000 S tyres ready for Pinarello Gran Findo on Sunday.
How much performance improvement do you all reckon I will get with the change in tyres?

    You will of course go faster with less rolling resistance. Should be worth at least a couple of bike lengths in a sprint and about 10 seconds on a longish climb. Difference between winning and coming 2nd or 3rd. Good luck!

    I have them on two of my bikes and they are seriously quick, really seriously noticeable.
