WOC - Day Zero

Today was the final day before all the real serious stuff starts tomorrow with the model events. Most teams seem to be here now, and all living in the Uni Hotel complex (apart from the Swedes and Finns). Myself, Chris, Ross and Maja spent the day relaxing while Bryn took Kenneth out for one final training with some route choices. In the afternoon Kenneth, Chris and Myself went to the famous Cave Spas, where there is a series of hot springs, spas and waterways inside a cave system, its pretty cool. With nothing much else to report we'll put up some profiles..
