Largely preventable by running higher air pressure.
Darn. That seems crazy. I'm really only running a few psi less than a lot of the WC guys, which seems reasonable given the difference in rider weight/amount of force being transmitted through them. Then again, those guys don't necessarily ride a set of tires for very long.

was gonna say... they don't run their tires for longevity.

Looks a lot like the Medusa of old with some sturdier side knobs. Old Shorty has better supported cornering knobs though.
