Sonic Riders Hints
GameCube | Submitted by Joey DudeGet Rings Quickly
You might die of boredom doing this but if you are a fairly patient person then it won't kill you (just about). All you have to do is go on red canyon. Go on single race and on the options select one lap. Just race as fast as you can and towards the end, just after the bit where you go up the wheel, and then go down the waterfall, go to the left side of the hill when you land and there is 100 rings. The kick ass thing about this is that it doesn't matter what position you come in you still get the rings.

When you reach the crossbow and the rotate joystick icon appears, rotate the left thumb stick clockwise as fast as you can. If you're sucsessful you will blast into the stadium.

To beat the guardian you gotta line yourself up with that little pot he is in and when you do that go straight thru it and the track should start to change. If you do that three times and beat him, you will get Eggman and two new tracks. One of those tracks is really cool.

Sonic Riders Easter Eggs
GameCube | Submitted by Sonic Freak 1991How to Ride a Rainbow
On Splash Canyon you can actually ride on a rainbow! On the first jump after you go through the water wheel, charge-jump and do back flips. You will land on a rainbow!
Xbox | Submitted by Sonic RiderBecome Super Sonic
If you want to be come Super Sonic, first you have to go to mission mode and complete every single mission ending in Gold Rank (Beleive me, it took me a long time!) and then when you finish the last mission, it will say that you unlocked Chaos. He has a Chaos Emerald type of board which lets everybody else have it. Go to Free Race and pick Sonic as your character. For his board, choose the Emerald. He will then become Super Sonic and is extremely good on the race track!
GameCube | Submitted by Dragonslyr495Dragonball Z Reference
Go to extras, go to the theaters menu and pick "Opening Movie". Or you can just start a new game and go to HEROES story, if you want to lose all your game progess. Now watch the movie, and at the very beginning, Tails will be holding a radar similar to the Dragon Radar. Pretty weird huh?
Sonic Riders Glitches
GameCube | Submitted by Dragonslyr495Wrong Annoncement
This glitch is wierd. Go to Time Trails, Free Race, or GrandPrix. Then pick Rouge and any board or skates. Do a couple of tricks, then an annoncement will say "HE" in it. (NOTE:This happens to Shadow too, except it will say "SHE" in it.)
