I found when I tried out clips that I would two wheel slide through a corner, holding more speed than I would dabbing a foot and nearly sliding out . Different styles I guess

Clips x 100

If you're comfortable enough with them you should be able to un-clip, dab and re clip in just like on flats

you don't have to race for a living to race in the pro/elite class. And I'll even go further and say how many pro riders have you seen racing on flats?

I would say there are probably half a dozen guys at most who make a living just from 4X. The word 'pro' is heavily over used in sports.

Oh and they would all be clipped in

Well I'm considering moving up to pro/elite for our winter.series as there's no 40+ cat just 30+...

So that would be me, and a few others doing the same
On flats

At the end of the day clips are faster for the majority of riders. I find that I can't gate anywhere near as good on flats as clips and it gives me far more than a 'tiny' advantage. You can still easily dab your foot down with clips, you just clip out... If they weren't faster and didn't have any advantage then nobody would run them, it's just they are advantageous so the majority of people do run them
