I used this tire for both training, a road race and a crit. It's a great tire. I did have 2 flats while training, but these were deep nail punctures that would affect any tire. Tire holds to pavement when cornering; no slipping. Big value in this tire.
Competitive cyclist here. I was tired of riding race-quality tires and always getting flats. This is a race-quality tire that after one month of hard-riding appears to be puncture resistant.
