I agree with Jeff’s recommendation¬†¬†to start with a 73. Additionally, you need to consider your height. I’m 6-2 and always seem to need one more tooth than shorter drivers or I risk loosing the draft. Also be very gentle on the clutch in practice. With such a tall gear, you can wear one out in 2 or 3 aggressive starts. Save those for the race.
