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.

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

Dakar.com

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.
