From Sooty's post:

"Earlier that morning... as we rolled down to the road race area, we saw an incredulous sight... wet roads. Why was this so incredible? Well, you see, it had not rained. It had not rained since Friday, and it was now Sunday morning 6:30am. How can it be wet? How? What? But!?!??!
The city workers washed the roads with WATER at 6am (as they do every morning in Nanjing), the roads were still wet at 7:30 when we started our race."
