[Square]. To do a Double Backflip, press [Down]x2,

hold [Square] + [Down] to make your rider to do a backflip;
or hold [Square] + [Up] to do a frontflip.
When you get any air, even from a Bunnyhop, press [L1]
+ [R1] + [L2] + [R2] to bail off your bike.

+ [L1] + [R1] and sometimes the game will reset with
you on top of a building.

Enter a two player mode bail contest. When you bail
([R1] + [R2] + [L1] + [L2]) and are high in
the air, press [Up] or [Down] to do flips, or [Right]
or [Left] to do spins.
Curl up in a ball
While falling off your bike up in the air, hold [Circle]
to curl up in a ball.
When you reach the end of a rail or coping in the game,
jump off and land in a manual. Ride the manual all the way to
the next rail and grind. This all counts as one trick because
of the manual -- you can pull off some long grinds.
When you are doing the 180 feet on the rail or just
need a little more speed, hold [Forward]. The game will make
you continue to pedal as long as you hold the D-Pad in

When you complete a set of hardcore challenges on a
level, the game will reveal one of the following tips.
Greenville - Vail Trails: Hold [X] at the base of the jump
and release at the lip for big air.
Greeville Trails: Big air
Greenville - Greenville Park: Hold the trick button longer for
Greenville - Backyard Pools: Hold the modifier longer for bigger
Woodward - Woodward Trails: Try double-tapping directions to get
lots of trick variations.
Woodward - Lot 8: Alley-oop air tricks are worth more points than
Woodward - Titanic: Use nose-wheelies and manuals to keep a trick
From where you start, jump over the log and go to the
train tracks. Turn left, and go into the dip with a couple rollers
and a log overhead. Pedal fast and slowly turn into the halfpipe
and bunnyhop. It is possible to get 50 feet of air and pull a
double backflip to frontflip 900.
Woodword Trails: Secret bowl
The secret bowl is behind the second building with
the Big Woodward sign on it. To get to the bowl, go up the jump
to get on the roof. When you are on the roof jump off the back
and you will be at the bowl.
Woodward Lot 8: Another bike park
You will start on a large ramp on one side of the wall.
Go up onto the opposite wall and jump off the fun box, like you
normally would. Do a wall tap and hold it. Then, lean your rider
and the bike toward the wall. If done correctly, the game will
glitch and set you outside in another little bike park. To get
back in, do the same thing,. Note: You do not necessarily have
to jump off the box.
Vail Trails: Hardcore challenge mode
Gap the train
Stay were you are at the beginning and wait until you see
a small area in the train . You have to time it just correctly
or you will smash into the train.
Grind more than 180 feet on the hydro tower wires
Get a lot of speed or you will not make it far enough since
you have to grind at a 25 degree angle upwards. When you start
off, go to the far corner of the level (after the creek gap which
is to your left at the start) and follow the quarterpipes. You
will need to go off them in order to get enough speed to make
the grind. You will eventually turn left and go down across the
creek, where there is a large dirt pile which you must launch
off. In order to get onto the rail you must grind to complete
the challenge. Do not bunny-hop at any time while you are on the
rail because you will lose speed. You will go around a U-turn
and come back down the remaining half of the rail.
Grind the telephone wire
You must gap the train to get to the other side . Just follow
the path and go off the jumps and you will land on a black and
purple ramp, which will bounce you up into the air towards the
telephone wire. You may have to do this more than once because
you have to hit the correct location on the trampoline/jump.
Gap the fence off the trailer
Turn right off the start into the area with the trailers that
are attached to the hillside. Go up the hillside and stop. Turn
your bike around to get lined up with the trailer. Go towards
the trailer and launch off the ramp, which is coincidentally attached
to the trailer.
Go to the train on the first level. Wait until the
car with no top rides by. Intentionally crash on it. If done correctly,
when you hit the tunnel the train enters while you are still tumbling,
it will sound like are being slammed through each cart.
Choose any rider and level. Stop and allow the game
to idle for five to fifteen minutes. Zs will appear above the
head of your rider.
Be careful not to go too close to the walls or you
can go through them and fall somewhere else.
Glitch: Infinite skid
Go fairly fast in a dirt surrounded area. Press [Down/Right]
and done correctly you will skid and move at the same time. Note:
This may require some time to do.
To skid as long as you want, go to a quarterpipe or vert ramp.
Go up the side of it a short distance. Then, hold [Down/Left]
or [Down/Right] as long as needed.
Glitch: Infinite Wall Tap and Fastplant
Use the secret bike to keep on doing a wall tap or
a fastplant. For example, press [Left] + [X], get straight
up, then release [Left] but keep [X] held.
Glitch: Infinite Toothpick Stall
Go up to any rail, or something that you can stall
on, and press [Up] + [Triangle]. Let yourself fall to
one side, and when you are about to fall off, hold the D-Pad
in the opposite direction and try to balance. If done correctly,
you should be able to stay in one position for a long time without
balancing but you still have to hold the D-Pad. Note: This
may require some practice.
Use the secret bike and perform a Double Peg Stall anywhere in
any level. The longer you are able to balance the rider, the more
points you will acquire.
Glitch: Infinite Grind
Go to the Acclaim Max Games Street. Go straight down the
ramp until you reach the jump. Make a left turn and go to the
other side. Then, execute a toothpick grind ([Up], [Triangle])
near the end. When you reach the end you will continue to grind
as long as you balance. Use this trick to break records or get
large amounts of points.
Glitch: Bike on water
Go to the second last level, bail near the water, and
use the "Hang on for dear life" trick. If done correctly,
you will see the bike bounce or just stay on top of the water.
Glitch: Get on roof or tower
Get very close the bottom of the roof or tower and
bail. After you get up, you will end up at the top. Note: If you
bounce off, it will not work.
To get on top of any building, go up to a wall and do a Fastplant/Walltap
([X], [Up] or [X], [Down]). Then, lean towards
the wall and fall through. Your character should fall into a green
or brown pit, then appear on top of the roof.
Glitch: Fall through wall
Go to Acclaim Max Games Street and do a Toothpick Stall
near the wall that separates you and the water. Lean toward the
wall and you should fall through.
Go to the first dirt level, where you have to do the wall tap
over the sign. Wall tap, but then hold it as long as you can.
If done correctly, you will fall into the area with the other
Glitch: Grind girders
On the Woodword Lot 8 level, go to the part with the
two quarter pipes (with one raised). Go up the quarter pipe that
is not raised and hold [Triangle]. If done correctly, you
will ride up the wall and grind the girders.
Glitch: Log backflip
Go to the first level. When you start, go up to the
log and hit it. Just at that instant, do a backflip. You will
jump over the log and will get the point even when you did not
backflip. This glitch also works with other tricks.

Grind the ceiling (demo version)
Hold [Up] until you hit the quarter pipe. From
the beginning, go straight and then up the ramp ahead. Then at
the end of the bowl, turn and go down the ramp and head towards
the quarter bowl. Go straight so you head towards the part of
the ramp that is right against the ceiling. When you get to the
ramp keep holding [Up] then hold [Triangle] + [Up]
when you go up. If you hold it, you will go up and grind the ceiling.
Glitch: Bounce continuously
Unlock the "Sticky crash" cheat. Then, select
any rider and start. Go off a halfpipe and hold [X] + [Up],
then press [L1] + [L2] + [R1] + [R2] to bail.
Then, hold [Triangle] immediately after you bail, but only
near a grinding rail. You will bounce off it either continuously
(if you are skilled) or hit it a few times then hang off the side.
If you do it a few times, you get further out. If you let it go
out far, you will go flying.
