1.) If you can’t place in an event, move on and come back to it later. Winning other events further in the Tour will unlock new parts to beef up your bike. Then, return and ace those troublesome tracks.
2.) Finishing the World Tour requires you to get 1st place in every event in the 10th stage. Do this to unlock character-specific ATV shells for every character in the game.
3.) In Freestyle events, go for the Star powerup as soon as possible. The sooner you can pull off a special trick, the better.
4.) Holding down a face button while doing a front or back flip will modify your flip and earn you even more points/boost.
5.) A purely freestlye bike isn’t always best for every freestlye track. If you’re having trouble winning a freestyle event with a freestyle bike, try your race bike instead. Sometimes being fast over jumps is more helpful than getting air.
