Hi Wooks
Don't do it ! I put a pair of 26s on my Scott build but were not grippy in mud or wet grass even with 40psi in 'em . Panaracer Fire XC /XC Pros work for me , even the 1.8s are better than the Ritcheys

Don't do it, I bought very similar treaded Ritchey tyres thinking they would be good in all conditions. Big mistake, the best way to describe them in mud is squirmy. Fine on dry hard ground but useless when it got wet.
