With more stats built up (everything bar wallride and spin), I had another go at Mike V’s huge gap thing – and managed it first time. Ditto for the few gaps he asked me to nail afterwards too. That opened up a load more of stuff in the Hardcore story.
Completed all of Dustin’s “missions”, most of which involved “skate checking” – punching people as I skated round. I then did a few Classic goals, and went off to build the rest of my stats up, maxing them out.
