You are very likely to get this achievement while going for the other achievements, but if you like me managed to complete every other achievement without accidently getting this one, here's how I did it:

- Choose difficulty Hard (choose Medium if you're having a hard time placing 1st consistently on Hard).
- Choose Single Race.
- Choose whichever character you perform best with (I always go with Flora, she's among the fastest, and her turning is more than good enough if you're familiar with the tracks).
- Now choose Tranquility Island (this race is among the shortest ones).
- Stay close to the walls and ground to fill up the boost energy bar.
- Now with full boost energy bar and at 1st place continue through the map until you see the final circle of arrows that you need to cross to finish.
- As soon as you see this circle reduce your speed completely by lifting your arms.
- Wait until a computer controlled character passes you (pay attention to when your placement turns to 2nd), lower your arms and turn on the boost (by leaning forward) through the finish line.
- This should place you right behind whoever places first.

This might take a few attempts, but using this method I managed to consistently place within 1 second of the 1st place.

Best of luck!
