This track is doing my nut in! I must be consistently about 1-2 secs faster than Dark Soldier near the top of the first hill, then it all seems to be a bit random whether i get any further. As i'm new to this game, not sure if i'm doing something wrong or if there's a fair bit of luck involved!


Probably making the same mistake I did on my first few goes. The key to speed on this is, well, minimising the use of the accelerator and pressing/holding right. There's certain sections where the bike will come away slightly, gently lean back into position and the grip should kick in. Never, ever flick the bike on this course whilst heading upwards, it'll screw you right up. Learn the places where you need to quickly ease off the accelerator/holding right, and just practice.

Also, if you're 1-2 secs faster on the first bit, then I dunno how, I can only see about an extra .3/4 to be made there.

Also, it'd be so much easier if the Phoenix was allowed :D

Cheers for the tips! Tried adding you, but looks like your friend list is full. Feel free to add me if that changes.

I leave your Ghost behind right from the first hump, and don't see it again till i fall off at the top of the hill! You should be able to easily improve your time by at least a second, possibly more there.

I'm just applying real world mountain biking skills, which is why i'm probably having trouble getting up the almost vertical bank! I'm just shifting weight and digging the back tire down to gain traction.

The reason the top of the first hill seems a bit random is, every now and again i fly to the top by doing virtually nothing, just flooring it. Of course, i then manage to cock the next bit up and then i'm put right back to the start. As a first timer it'd be a big help if i could easily practise each section.

I think I understand which part you mean (not at home 'til Monday so can't check), but it is a bit random I think, Even repeating it the same way sometimes sees the bike zooming up, then other times just losing grip for no reason. Quite a frustrating level, really :D

I am very happy with 8th to be honest.

I went a bit mad when I beat Brad's time and I filled the air with many a expletive.

I think I'd be 12th if I was on there. Only managed to post one time, I need to steel myself before attempting that again!

Did you get a FR from me, ttk? I might have just thought I sent it.

I'm using the 450cc bike, cos it's the most powerful one I've unlocked. Should I go unlock a better one before I try this any more? Is everyone else using a better bike than me, or am I just rubbish?

You can't use the Phoenix anyway on this track, the creator has blocked it.

If you have (or anyone has) any suggestions for ace custom tracks, do PM me or post them in the Trials Evo thread or something!

I quite like the track. I'm a fan of the uphill battle in Trials, and there's no hardcore difficult bits that your whole run depends on.

Added a few of you too. I finished all the extremes on HD, and platinumed most up to then. But need to get back into trials. Oh I wish this was on vita...

Aargh I hate uphill trials! Also, I've been playing Bike Baron far too much lately and I can tell when playing this. 40.687 for 1st run. Not bad. I was on a blinding time the go after that, but right near the end I pushed it too much and flipped. Managed to slide all the way back to the start before crashing though. Weirdly proud of that!

Every now and then i get to the water, at the top of the hill, in 13 secs. The pressure at this point is monumental, far too much for any normal man to bear. Also, I pull some epic sex faces whilst playing this.
