2007 BP MS150 - Houston-Austin NE riders?

Hey fellow Clydes,
I was just wondering if any of you are riding in the MS150 this year? This will be my second year. Last year I did it on a Trek 4500 <hardtail>, and it nearly killed me. The bike weighed in excess of 40 lbs, I wore a 3 litre camelback, and I weighed in at 285. It was miserable. I made it the whole way without SAG'n out.
This year I have a custom built <not BD> Motobecane Sprintour that weighs in at 19 lbs, will not be wearing my camelback...learned that you dont need it, and I am at 262.
So tag back if you will be riding???
Cheers

I'm in. This will be my 7th year riding & will be riding as a Ride Marshal again.

I'd add another bottle cage, though. Us Clydes need plenty of fluids on long rides.
