I didn't sign up for this year, I was thinking ahead toward next year. That'll give me time to spend some quality time on my MTB.
Elevation will be a factor even though I live at ~5,000'. The Triple Bypass kicked my butt last year -- I lost a lot of power/energy anytime I got much over 9,500', which is a good portion of that ride -- hence the 8+ hour ride time. But thanks for your confidence!
I do know one person who rode Leadville a few years ago, but he DNF'ed, so it's hard to use his experience as a guide. If I don't get many more responses, I'll take RC's advice and start bugging people directly.
