Excitebike 64 Forum  /  Gravel Pit shortcut

Has anybody ever managed to hit the shortcut jump on Gravel Pit on the first lap? The one that's barricaded on first lap and open on the second one? There's a very small gap on the left side, and I'm about 90% sure it's at least theoretically possible to line yourself up just perfect to hit it. Maybe about half the time I can actually hit the gap, but never with enough speed to make it to the landing.

I'll look into that, I never thought to try it.

Makes you think...
Who is taking the barricades down inbetween laps? 🤔

It's possible, testing right now, will make a gif of it when I can get it without faulting

Got a run to show you guys, i got it on the left, its also possible on the right. Honestly I think the run is crap, multiple lag spikes in the run (not in recording) when you do the run you'll see the moment for yourself.

Damn Pancakes! Nice one! I guess now we have to split the leaderboard into glitched and glitchless? lol And then of course we'll need a some-glitches category, too.

Honestly, you're not doing anything the game wasn't intending you to do, you just passed a barrier. I see it as Marine Fortress on Wave Race 64. In that game you can get passed an iron gate by diving under it on the first lap when it wasn't intended, but it still goes up on the second lap. You don't go out of bounds, you don't do something that wasn't intended, so I think the category will stand. One thing I will note is that you can go a little bit left at the beginning and dodge the two jumps at the beginning and ride the flat area. Getting close to another run that I can show this off.

2:36.46, got the world record on cyberscore. Also I was wrong about the lag spikes, at least after the big jump, it's actually gravel spots you will need to wheelie over. My dumbass thought it was lag to the game not realizing your at the landing section, and it had to load you in.

The run:
