If you dont mind about not being as competitive as possible, then fit risers if they make the bike feel more comfortable. But if you do want your bike to work as well as it possibly can, then take note of the fact than no one riding at WTC level uses risers.

For taller riders, the best possible option is to move the bar mounts forward, and failing that the bars can be moved forward of the 90 degree to the ground position thats best for most riders, but depending on the bend of the bars, this can mean extra strain on the wrists, so moving bar mounts forward 12mm tends to work better.
