I tried to do this one by just riding out the two loops but that proved to be quite difficult. So I found an easy way to do it.
Steps:
1) Start the challenge
2) Immediately get off your board and take a few steps backwards
3) Set a new session marker down, while remaining off your board.
4) Start running forwards (run with the A button)
5) Jump on your board (Y) while running, you want to jump just before going down the initial slope for the challenge.
6) When you get to the flat spot just before the loop go into a manual.*
7) A normal manual is fairly easy to control and all you have to do is aim down the blue line and its cake.

*You should have enough speed from your run and the slope to easily make it out of the loops.

Why Manual? Its a trick that actually allows your character to stay at the same speed (or close to) even when he/she is supposed to be slowing down (ie: upside down).

Hope this helps!
