Le Puy-Figeac in 2010

I am planning on walking the camino from Le Puy to Figeac next year. I understand that 2010 is a jubilee year with more than the normal number of pilgrims expected. Can anyone please give me an idea of how many pilgrims might be expected next year on this section based on the last jubilee year?

The jubilee year is for Santiago, and I don't imagine it will cause a huge increase in the numbers walking from Le Puy to Figeac. (Le Puy itself has a different way of working out its jubilee: "the great jubilee which is granted to Our Lady of Le Puy whenever Good Friday falls on 25 March, the Feast of the Annunciation." - from Wikipedia.)

You don't say which month you are planning on walking: one of the busier months for French people walking in this part of France is May, and it can get busy around the times of public holidays. However, I always found a bed, and only once resorted to paying more for a chambre d'hote.
