    Green slime, I'll bet! A shallow layer of slow moving water on the concrete lets algae proliferate. A mate of mine was badly injured crossing a drift like that. We could hardly stand on the surface it was so slippery.....

    We have a crossing like that here on Seven Springs Rd. It's claimed a number of riders here, even our more experienced ones. :rofl

    Like walking on ice, you know it's slick but once you start to slip there's nothing that can be done about it. :1drink

    On completion of a superb battle with the title holder, Joan Barreda picked up his 4th stage victory on the 2013 edition, 1’15 ahead of Cyril Despres. In the general standings, the Frenchman took regained command ahead of his team-mate Ruben Faria, who finished the day in 8th place.

    As the first to get to grips with the 357 km of the 10th stage, Cyril Despres opened the road all day along the special’s tracks, attacking throughout, but avoiding taking major risks on a terrain similar to the type encountered in endurance races, even though it was quick, technically demanding and especially physically tiring. Just behind him on the tracks, Joan Barreda again proved to be the only rider able to compete with the title holder’s pace. At the end of the day, after a major attack at the end of the special stage, the Spaniard was victorious, 1’15 ahead of Despres and 2’44 in front of his team-mate Paulo Gonçalves. The Portuguese rider, hero of the day having repaired the machine of his team-mate Botturi, after the Italian fell, confirmed the speed of the Husqvarna bikes as they put 3 machines in the day’s top 6.

    However, in the general standings, KTM are dominant because the Austrian brand has taken advantage of Botturi’s misfortunes to occupy the first 4 places of the top 5! What’s more, the title holder, Cyril Despres, regained the lead of the general standings, 1’37 ahead of his water carrier Ruben Faria, 8th today, 8’15 behind the stage winner. Still ready to spring an ambush, Chaleco Lopez remains 3rd, 13’41 behind the Frenchman and 4’40 ahead of Slovakian Ivan Jakes. Lastly, Alessandro Botturi, the leading Husqvarna rider in the general standings, now occupies fifth place, 24’25 behind the rally leader and 9’54 in front of sixth placed Helder Rodrigues, the best placed Honda rider.

    In the quad category, Lukasz Laskawiec grabbed a 2nd stage victory, 1’35’’ ahead of Ignacio Casale and 3’23 in front of Rafal Sonik, whilst Marcos Patronelli started to defend his lead in the general standings, making do with the day’s 6th best time, 6’16 behind the day’s winner. In fact, the 2010 winner still sits comfortably in the lead, 1:27’47 ahead of Casale and 2:05’51 in front of Sonik.

    I've busted my ass a couple times just like that. It really sucks if your bike doesn't slide through it. You cannot pick up a bike in that stuff.
