    Hard sx like suspension...... pirelli 410 tires. the rear is like paddle tire but with knob rows for FIM legal use. wet or not all those bikes will dig it up like farm tractor and will make it like loose sand dune riding, it will be loose and soft. (Ive seen the viddys of this race)
    Hard suspension, no wallow, stay on the gas, and ride it like you are on a jet ski, pirelli 410s will keep you on power with traction not to dig ditches but keep you moving forward. Stand stay back and let the front wheel dance across the grooves..... looks like an epic endeavor, be safe, have fun, and of course finish.
    Also I'm sure there are many others with real Weston experience to consult with, my observations come from 3 guys I know personally that raced the (sandy beach) supermarecross nationals in Italy, 2 were Pro champs, all three are(were) stupid good sand riders, 2 went on to and were regulars in the jetski world championships.
