2022 BWR Kansas information, beta, setup etc

Good day friends!

My cousin convinced me to sign up for BWR Kansas this October.

I’ve never ridden out there. I’ve done BWR San Diego many times and multiple gravel events in California but never in Kansas.

For those who have done it, what would recommend for tire setup? Clothing? All the videos I saw last year people had tights long sleeves full fingered gloves which totally would be overkill in CA.

Hydration pack or not?

And again, tires?

I’ll be using my Specialized Crux so should have room for a variety of tire widths.

I appreciate any information. Thanks! :pray:t5:
