Never done a H2H with these 2 runs before, but I've always considered getting as much drive as possible on the return ultimately quicker.
Th Champ spends too much time in the air - Shane gains a little bit on that return.
I could do with bettering my time here - I've pushed the simplistic but reliable start almost as far as it can go (a touch more left, maybe). It's just not a level I can get enthused about. But I may have too..
The frames on this level are extremely tight at these times. These minuscule differences you are seeing might amount to 3-4 frames.
My stats on this level are staggering... more than 20,000 tries and more than 4,000 completed runs to hit 19.80. Haven't played it since. Sure maybe Th Champ's time is beatable, but there just isn't a lot more to explore on this map.
Watch the top 5 runs on H2H. Never once do any of the bikes separate themselves from the pack. It's as if they are all bungeed to each other. Have a looksee: Champ vs. 4 others
