I don't have much to report on from Houffalize. The rain stopped yesterday, it was nice this morning and now it's raining again. The course has changed a bit from previous years with some more uphill technical single track. I have never seen the caution arrows for an ascent until today. The course is getting pretty muddy and I think we're going to have a muddy one this weekend. I've caught a little cold so I'm just sitting around all day doing nothing(not much different from what I would be doing anyway just a bit less training).
