Do you have a cross bike or would you do it on your road bike? Tires? I read Stetina won on a regular Trek Madone?
Stetina did it on his Madone with tubeless 28c file treads pumped up pretty dang hard. If I did that race, I'd throw 50-34 on my gravel bike and run 28-30 file tread tubeless. There's so much road that treaded tires would cost you a ton of time.
