Checking tire pressure cold is useless. If you are not using tire warmers, check pressures right after coming off the track. Aim for the recommended hot tire pressure from the manufacturer. You can't correlate cold pressure to hot pressure....too many variables such as pace of the rider, track temperature, track surface and grip. Even the tire manufacturers pressure is just a starting point. You have to read your tires to determine if you need to go up or down in pressure. You have to know what to look for to tell if a tire is cold or hot tearing.
