TKC70 mounting direction?

Hi.
I have a question about tire mounting.

I bought the Continental TKC70 for the front of my Wee.

The direction arrow is confusing. It uses the word "Front" and not the word "Rotation" or anything. If it is installed facing the direction of rotation then the word is upside down. If installed with the word "Front" right side up the arrow points counter-rotation.
Which is correct?

Thank you for your help.

You guys are awesome.

Based on images I found online of the tire mounted on various bikes I think I will point the arrow clockwise and ignore the word.

Yep. Use the arrow to determine mounting direction. Don't worry about the word.

I suspect the word Front means that it a front tire, not a rear. And, not to be used as a rear.

Sometimes a tire can be used front or rear. Weird, I know but it happens. If it says Front with an arrow, point it that direction. Otherwise mount it in the opposite direction if you happen to use it on the rear.
