I'm an average Trials player at best but I feel I can get this achievement.. if I could ever clear those damn barrels near the beginning!! Seriously no matter what I do once I hit the first barrel I lose all momentum to be able to clear the next barrel that's slightly higher up. I've watched many videos where people clear it with ease but I'm not getting anywhere.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated

Which barrels are you stuck at? Can you tell me which checkpoint it's at?

3rd checkpoint after the start

Alright. Once you get to the third checkpoint just hit :b: to fault yourself. Or, if you want to try to do this anyway to save yourself the possibility of a fault.

From where you restart at the checkpoint you're going to want to accelerate all the way and do a bunny hop at the same time. Then when your back tire hits the barrel of the platform with the checkpoint do another bunny hop. It may take a few tries but just practice that until you can get it most of the time and then you can restart the track if you like or try to continue.

Yeah this part is the most annoying part with the phoenix also. Everytime I went for a platinum run, I'd get owned by the barrels once or twice.

I sucked so bad at that level, finally finished it in 25 minutes and with 284 faults. Keep at it buddy, and Im sureyou can beat my pathetic time.

Well latest attempt got 400 faults and 20 mins in, still stuck at the barrels. However being frustrated with this one led me to attempt "hard the hard way" which I got in about 10 runs.. so woohoo!!

Well, at least something came out of it.
