I have done it the last 3 years on a team and this year will be doing the 12 hour solo division. It is a great event. I have never heard anyone complain about anything having to do with the race. There are around 400 riders on average I believe, including the teams. The only division that seems to be a bit on the empty side is the elite/pro class. Last year there was one team. The sports, expert, novice classes have plenty, with the majority in sport. Check out their website for all the info you'll need. They also have a forum there where you can ask questions. They improve the race every year, this year they added the 12 hour divisions and Real Time Scoring. It is run professionally and is always a blast and no I don't work for the promoters of the race. You should do it for sure.
