Reminding you that you wrote...

I'm wondering if you recall using the front brake on the fine layer of dirt?

Not in the turn at all as I'm totally aware that's the worst thing you can do on a loose surface as well as turning the wheel hard which is why I'm so bemused by what happened .... the other guy that came off behind me did slam his brakes on to avoid hitting me which is what caused him to come off though.

I'm probably going to go back down there over the weekend and have a look and see what it's like but it literally felt like I'd just hit a sheet of black ice
