Shall I change tyre?

On my Specialized Elite I have got a Specialized Pro Dual Compound Mondo tyre at the front (I bought the bike about 3 weeks ago second hand so don't know really the mileage). I have already had a puncture on the second ride. I was examining the tyre this morning while washing the bike and I have noticed a couple of small cuts. On Sunday I have my first triathlon and was wondering if I should change the tyre? I have got a brand new Vittoria Zaffiro Slick that I bought a while ago for a previous bike. What would you do? IT is a Sprint triathlon (not that I will be near the top elite guys) but if I get a puncture this would cost me a lot on term of placement.
Thanks

    Change it

    I use Vittoria Rubino Pros instead of Spz tyres

  • It all depends on whether you have the right colour tyre or not :wink:
