I don't, but check youtube - I am sure there are many videos of the race.
If I can help you this way - buy boost mods, have boost board and boost perk suit.

Then go down and follow the AI - if you combine the paths of gold, silver and bronze(you can see how fast they are on right top - positions) then you should be allright.

Otherwise jump before kicker, open wingsuit for rocket push (:D) and then trick on ground until you have tricky.
Then jump before kicker so it wont throw you up in the air and use boost!

Check the three arrows that are coming to TRICKY text and press square or circle for nose and tail grind to cancel the chevrons and hold tricky. Do more tricks to get super uber gold TRICKY and boost down the line without jump or jump before kickers to keep low.

Well, hopefuly I did help you somewhat.

Or use wingsuit and beat my score, something around 1:30.~~

There is a narrow tunnel on JT2 that is about halfway through, love riding in it as you get a great sense of speed in it. Unfortunately it is a waste in races as it probably takes longer to get to it than what you earn time wise.

I have also taken a great liking to doing survive it on Code Blue. (Patagonia backcountry.) It's probably the easiest one in the game and I use it as a sort of free ride since you can easily spend at least 10 minutes on it.

I really hope they get rid of the wing suit for a possible sequel though. It is great fun to use on a couple of tracks, but it is just to gamebreaking.

I don't think it's anything, really. I've seen pretty much everyone with their gamertags saying Mysterious Range, so it's clearly something we can all do in the game right now, and not mysterious at all.

Yes but some courses are very unfair with a lot of death pits. Tricky remains my favorite, I top almost every non death pit tricky event on my friends list and I'm proud of that :).

Hmmm, the turn/carving radius seems smaller now after the patch. It's tighter when trying to hold a line or whatever, but you give up the ability to turn sharper when you want.

I keep wishing they would have just included different board styles, like shorter boards, long alpine boards and so on, all with different carving and handling attributes instead of making us all try and adhere to one style for everything.

Patch details released:

Patch Notes

New Features

· PS3 RiderNet Radio (PS3 VOIP Support)

To use:

From the RiderNet menu (Back/Select from the main menu) a new 7th option “RiderNet Radio” is available.

Within the main screen for RiderNet Radio, you have the following options available:
· See a list of all your friends’ active groups
· Join a group
· Create a group
· Refresh groups
· Back -> Takes you to RiderNet menu

While in a group, you should see all members of the group in a list and hear them chatting on your headset. You will also have the following options available from within this area:
· Leave group
· Refresh Screen
· Back -> takes you to RiderNet menu


RiderNet Radio can support up to 10 users within a single room.

While participating in a RiderNet Radio group, you can chat with your friends while playing anywhere in the game. Whether you are in separate modes, the front end or riding down the mountain together in a Global Event, you and your friends will now be able to enjoy sharing your SSX experience together.

*Please note that RiderNet Radio is not available in Japan.


Updates and Bug Fixes
· Issue in which several badge notifications would continue to trigger repeatedly due to other pending notifications from friends or additional badge challenge requirements completed in quick succession.
· Fixed a crash when a user attempts to collect a global event earning from a DLC range (eg: Japan) which had been deleted/removed from their system.
· Users will now see tombstones after multiple consecutive runs, rather than only on the first lap of a Survival drop.
· Using the time dilation (the slowdown stylish move executed by tapping the rewind button), some users were able to exploit extra trick points by activating the slowed state repeatedly in order to increase the length of time their grabs were held while in the air or grinding.
· Fixed an issue in which users that had hidden a rival (friend) from within RiderNet Rivals screen, and then removed this same Rival (friend) off of 1st party friend lists could potentially cause the save files to become corrupt.
· Fixed a crash which was being encountered while loading into global events.
· Fixed a crash which was being encountered during loading screens.
· Attempting to redeem a code for the online pass, while an online pass is unavailable, would occasionally hang the title.
· Fixed an issue in which active global events that a user is participating in would not always update, and would sometimes result in the drop fee associated to the event being deducted when re-entering the event.
· Adjusted the boundary data within New Zealand’s Mount Wakefield tracks, as some users were able to find a way to get outside the main track area and achieve faster record times taking an unintended route.
· Fixed an issue in which some global event earnings were not properly being paid out to users that had participated and qualified for winnings when returning to the “While you were away screen” or while connecting online after previously playing in an offline state.
· Fixed an issue in which Geotags were not always paying out the correct amount for a full survival bonus.
· Final global event standing and payout will now appear in your GE wall.
· Fixed an issue with classic controls, where the in-air spin/flip/roll rotational speed was not quite as fast as when using the standard controls.

One of the toughest badges to get in SSX is the 50,000 Riders Global Events Badge. Last week we set up a Facebook event called Let’s Try to Get the 50,000 Riders Global Events Badge! trying to rally you all together and it became huge as over 100,000 gamers took part and both Xbox 360 and PS3 in the two-week long ‘Beyond the Fall’ Global Event. As a thanks for your participation we’ve released some great content that we promised to the SSX community, including the ability to level your riders up to 11. The content is available via the latest online Tuner Update, even if you didn’t make it out for the event.

It’s a big week for SSX with lots of great new content and we can’t wait to see you on the mountain.
50,000 Riders Global Events Badge Tuner Pack
Riders can now be leveled to 11.
Level 11 Gear - unlock better gear, a new mod slot and a new Geotag slot.
We’ve changed the lighting on key signature tracks in Global Events and in Explore Mode: Serenity has been changed to Pink Dusk. Bulldog and Morning Tiger trick events in New Zealand are now Dusk Orange.
We’ve also added longer Global Events and more big money events.
Players will get more experience points when playing in Global Events.

Edited and added to the OP!

Patches have to go through MS+Sony certification, which takes time and costs around $50K.

I'm guessing they wanted to put as many fixes in there as possible to make it worth it.

Go to custom global events, create one somewhere with the gear level cap of the mods you'd want to buy. Enter the event and then go to mods, they should be locked to the level cap you set.

I've had the game since launch but I just now realized that you can tap the rewind button for a momentary slow-mo effect that doesn't give you any points penalty. Very fun to do especially during über tricks.

It also has the consequence of sometimes making the ladies sound like dudes.
