Re: where are these blisters coming from?

I use the blister resistors under my gloves. Works well for me.

I use both Dean and Jeffs method. Underware glove liner and spider grips. It also helps to not hold on so tight!

Re: where are these blisters coming from?

If your gloves are too big now, they will most likely be perfect if you get the underliners.
I've tried taping my hands before, and it seems to help a little, but after about 20 minutes in (WORCS Race)the tape starts to like wad up in spots and come off of the spots you were trying to protect. Makes it very uncomfortable.
I know that both Brandon Brown and Mike Bender (Pro riders in the northwest)put baby powder in their gloves before they ride. I've never tried this, but they both reccomend it.
But I think the best thing to do is just keep riding a lot, and during one of the longer breaks between races, they will start to calus up. Once you get good caluses built up, you will hardly ever get blisters. Just make sure you don't peel the skin of the blister off, it's much harder to get the caluses if you do that. Drain them with a needle instead of making a big hole.

Re: where are these blisters coming from?

Blisters come from the elevated fear level during racing conditions. The faster you ride the great the blisters appear. Sounds good anyway.

A well pit pair of gloves, Undergloves, baby powder, tape or Mulskin then loosen your grip and relax.

Good luck,
Todd
