The BC Races 


There are 4 BC Races: Easy, Medium, HARD and ROCKHard. Each Race is 
split into 8 heats, each heat with 4 tracks of differing difficulty - 32 tracks 
in total. The 8 heats will occur in the following order: 

Heat 1: ROCK CITY RACE 
Heat 2: NIGHT RALLY 
Heat 3: DESERT DRIVE 
Heat 4: JUNGLE RUMBLE 
Heat 5: SWAMP STOMP 
Heat 6: BLIZZARD BLITZ 
Heat 7: CAVE RAVE 
Heat 8: VOLCANO DASH 

At the finish of each BC Race, a trophy will be awarded to the winner. To 
win a trophy, you must race through all 8 heats of a particular BC Race 
(Easy, Medium, Hard or Rockhard). Your position at the end of each heat 
will win you points which are applied to the League Table. You will only 
win the trophy for a particular BC Race if you appear at the top of the 
League Table after the 8th heat of that Race. Appearing at the top of the 
League Table after the 8th heat of the 'Rockhard 1 BC Race, will win you, 
not only the Rockhard and Enormous Trophy, but the coveted Ultimate 
Boulderdash Bike! 


Continues 

If you crash out or come 8th in any of the heats, you will be asked if you 
want to quit or try again. If you try again, you must re-race the track/heat 
you crashed out or came 8th in. If you do this, you will use up one of your 
two Continues. 


Cliff's Clues 


Cool 'n' crazy Cliff Ace, has some prehysterical playing hints to help you 
out: 

• Cut as many corners as you can. Cutting corners will win you the race! 

• Knock as many other riders off their bikes as you can - the more you 
knock off, the more league table points you'll get! 

• Avoid losing at all costs! 

• If there are shortcuts on the track, use 'em - if you can find 'em, that 
is...
