If the cost is about 30 pounds sterling , I would like to get a few ,too. In Japan there is an agent, Dugast Japon, whose site is here; http://www.dugast.com/ ( all in Japanese) Or you can see the tyres a little on a page of a shop in Kyoto; http://www1.odn.ne.jp/~aaa65240/dugast.html Their prices are 8800(cotton)--18000(silk) yen ,that is, $81--$166 , that is, 55--112 pounds.
I have found some information at the site. # 4 teams ( Once, US Postal, Bigmat Auber, Credit Agricole) used Dugast tyres in the Paris-Roubaix 2000, although they were labeled as Hutchinson.
# Japanese track team used Dugast at the Sydney Olympics The results were miserable , though we have the largest population of professional track racers in the world. Takao Noda Hachioji, Tokyo, Japan
