We raec BMX club races in the rain. There's this one hairpin that we get to at an average 25 mph with virtually bald tires. The last time I raced 3 hours in I had to take my front brake pads off because they were too wet. I have to use both brakes to get into the turn. Most others use only their rear and put their foot down, but I use a different cornering technique. Luckily, when it started raining hard, our hired officials cancelled the race, about three hours in of 24. My rear brakes were getting very wet, but they were warm enough to dry a little. I had to hold the brakes on small straights to dry them off. It was WET. Don't be afraid of wetness, it can be fun sometimes.
