    Just keep playing ranked death race or spot race games and you will unlock this when you get 600xp.

    don't worry too much about winning (although you will get more xp) just try and finish the race.

    Avast MateyMinimize the number of players in the game to maximize your experience. With two players you will always get at least 12 xp if you finish the race.

    *** Sorry, folks -- servers are down, so this achievement is unobtainable. Original solution follows. ***

    Easy to grind this achievement out, as you always earn EXP if you complete the competition (see below). You need 600 EXP to earn Icon status.

    The formula for EXP is roughly as follows:

    WIN = 16, 2nd = 12, 3rd = 10, 4th = 8, 5th = 6

    Correspondingly, smaller matches will give you more EXP for last place.

    However, you MUST complete the competition to earn points. This means finishing in a reasonable amount of time and, for Deathrace, without missing 4+ gates.

    Once you learn the courses, it can become very easy to beat up on the noobs, and most players in the Race gametypes are noobs. This is also a good time to get your win-streak achievements -- I had 3 6+ win-streaks, all of which were in races.

    EDIT: To check your EXP, go into "Xbox LIVE", "Community", "My skate. Profile". At the bottom, it will show "EXP Earned" and break it out by Trick, Race, and Total EXP.

    This is pretty easy to boost now that the game has some age to it. Go to custom ranked deathrace and search at the same time as you friend. It should match you right up. You can take turns winning gaining the 600 exp you need in about two hours. Also once your matched you stay in a lobby together it just keeps changing tracks.
