I've had that, new tarmac in the wet can be lethal for a bike, the trouble is that it's hard to see it's new when it's wet. The oils seep out of the tarmac and float on the water and it becomes an ice rink. I was lucky it was a straight bit of road, so my only issue was some wheelspin although that's a strange feeling at 60 mph on 2 wheels.
Glad everyone was OK tho Stef
