    Bit of luck required here and plenty of perserverence! Lane 1 is the best for obvious reasons. Get a high start 90+ if you can get the timing down,Roughly 7secs from ready, and keep the tightest line possible around the course getting Green steps each time on the straights,When turning get your skates as close to the black markers as possible,your hands can cross over without any penalty in speed. I lapped the computer on the last corner of last lap,Its a close one but definately possible.Hope this helps

    Stumpy25Just a few more tips that helped me get this today...
    1. Watch out for the last block (black marker), the game thinks it's bigger than it is, so hug the corner as bust you can (blocks under armpit), but let up the TriggerButton right before you pass over the last bock so you don't hit it.
    2. Take 4 steps on each straight-away, and duh, make sure they're all green. You can take 5 steps, but it doesn't speed you up if your speed is already maxed out. 4 steps gets you in leaning position for the corner. If you take 5, you probably won't be able to hug the blocks as well as if you took 4 steps.

    Hope this helps.

    Stumpy25One more thing, I stayed in 3rd persion view the entire game. 1st person does help with the steps timing, but it VERY hard to hit the turns just right.

    buttooni just got this after lots and lots of tries!!! I was concentrating on getting the greens originally however if you just get your cornering as tight as possible i got atleast 4 reds and did it on the 6th lap!

    This is by far the hardest achievement in the game. First of all you have to get a good jump, which means guessing. There's really no warning as to when the gun will go off, you just have to take a shot. There's no penalty for going early, you just have to start over. Also if you're not on the inside, don't even bother, I don't think it can be done.

    So get off the line with a 90 plus, and mash the a button super fast. You have to play the first turn really well, so ideally you only hold down the trigger once, and let go once, (that means starting your turn a little later than you think, which also lets you mash the a button a little longer). Once turn one is done you should be significantly ahead of the pack. I hold left on the left stick the entire race, which, if this achievement takes you as long as it took me, will be exhausting. This way if your turn is too wide, you steer back to the inside on the straight away and cut down distance. It also helps on cornering.

    From there you just have to hit basically all green footsteps. When I got it, I think I got one red and one yellow, but they were late in the event. Sometimes it's tough to tell if the first step will count out of a corner, but just try to hit them all even when they don't count to be safe. Some straight-aways give you 4 steps, others you can squeeze in a 5th. It's rare that you have to take 5 steps, but the 5th helps make up for a red or yellow step. If your meter is already full, I don't think it adds speed. Corners must be sharp, but if you cut it too close and cross the line, you'll be penalized with a slowdown, and it's over.

    The race counts backwards from 15 laps, but you only have until the end of lap 5 to lap the last place skater. As soon as you pull ahead, the event ends.
