Anyone else doing the Elk Mountain Traverse?

It's a 40-mile backcountry ski race from Crested Butte to Aspen and it attracts some of the best athletes in the state. I did it last year, finishing 26th, in 11:02:20. By the way, if there had been a separate category for people from the Front Range, I would have been first in it.
Anyway, it's so long, and requires so much training, that I wasn't sure I was in for it again... but the skiing in town has been great. I've been able to get out on several long skis, so last night, my partner Hunter and I signed up. The race starts March 31 at midnight. Anyone else from town going? We could carpool.
