Challenge mode is available from the beginning of the game so you don't have to unlock anything first. There are 3 modes in challenges: SIDECAR, PLANE & SWORD, all with variety of challenges and differing degrees of difficulty from Easy to Expert.

The SIDECAR challenge consists of 3 modes: RACE, CHASE & FIGHT, total of 12 challenges and you'll need to get a Gold ranking in all of them.

RACE: Hold up on the controller after going over a jump for the speed boost and stay off the gravel, you'll start to learn where to turn and what route is the shortest.
Youtube video for Expert Race (Pt times):

CHASE: This involves chasing a truck and you are controlling it while AI Haddock tries to blow it up. This is similar to race but I found its easier to follow the truck directly, anticipate where it will turn then cut corners to catch up. The closer you are to the truck the more damage you'll do and faster it can be destroyed. Don't go out of your way for jumps.
Youtube video for Expert Chase (Pt times):

FIGHT: I found this to be the easiest of the 3 sidecar challenges. Don't spam the fire button unless you are aiming at the truck or chopper, make sure the reticule is green then fire individually. You'll need a few turns to figure out when to shoot the bikes or the chopper(s).
Youtube video for Expert Fight (Pt times):

This achievement isn't that difficult as you only need to go for Gold, not Platinum times. But with a little practice Pt is not that much harder than Gold. If you are going for 100% completion you should keep going for Pt. medals to work towards this achievement:
