spare tubular

i'm racing on tubulars for the first time this year. just wondering what others do in case you get a puncture? i'm planing on carrying a spare tub, and i tape them on rather than gluing. do i need to pre-tape the spare? or will there still be enough stickiness left on the rim once i've removed the old one and then i just take it really easy around corners after the change?

    If you are taping them, then if you pretape them you will lose any stickiness on the tape when they are waiting to be changed. Just carry a spare tub and swap it out if you get a puncture and then be very careful around corners. Though if your tyres are in good condition and pumped up properly you shouldnt get any punctures unless some t**t decides to put tacks all over the course...
