We’re heading Old School for Uplay Recommended this week. Following closely on the heels of Trials Community Spotlights for avid Over The Hill Gang (http://trials.ubi.com/trials-portal/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-209810-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32) member Morfyboy and founder BigBow (http://trials.ubi.com/trials-portal/en-GB/news/detail.aspx?c=tcm:154-211041-16&ct=tcm:148-76770-32), we’ve got a drop featuring 11, count ‘em 11, tracks from the fine ladies and gentlemen of the OTHG.

We’re going to run through a small sample of the 11 OTHG tracks, but be sure to check out Track Central to play them all for yourselves!

Snowy Ridge by xXdean09Xx

A quick uphill dash, Snowy Ridge makes for a perfect warm-up track, or for a leaderboard chasing track. A good run isn’t too hard to accomplish, but with the relative shortness on the ridge, coupled with the ease to pull off a less than stellar transition, you’ll be facing some tough odds to bring home a top spot.

Old.Town:Hills.Gate by Dr4gOnsFuRy

While possibly not exactly a technical uphill, that’s the feeling I get from the Dr4gOn’s track. Some smooth transitions, as well as memory and reflexes, are needed to set a top time, but the scenery is well done, and offers up an excuse should you catch your back tire on a ramp ledge and end up on your face. It’s not typical to see an older town in Trials that looks anything other than ominous, but Old Town has the feeling that, yeah, maybe the town has seen better days, but this is home, and home rather enjoys your company.

Redline Racers by Team OTHG

The OTHG has its own team of Track Builders… Does your crew have that? Well, these slightly older fellows got together and jammed out a decidedly red X-Supercross track that I have been getting destroyed on. Slick animations, nice flowing jumps… There’s nothing not-to-like about Redline Racers. Get a crew together and throw down in some online heats.

Aztec Mystique by elCamsterino

Welcome to the serene, bunny-hop happy world of the Aztec, as imagined by elCamsterino. Be prepared for a fast and flowing ride with only a smattering of technical obstacles. How will you place on Aztec Mystique? Probably higher than I did, but that’s only because I’m not all that great.

Why so many awesome tracks specifically from these builders? Well, the OTHG is celebrating their 3rd Anniversary, and over 18,000 forum posts to the OTHG Weekly Hot Lap Challenge (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/857270-The-Over-The-Hill-Gang-weekly-HLC-s-%28-Hot-Lap-Challenge-s-%29/page1822) thread. Three years of rocking some (typically) friendly competition and solid weekly challenge tracks.

:DAwesome drop, thanks RL!

Small issue with Redline Racers I feel I should share;
There is a Player Detach Event a little bit too close just after the finish line,
It doesn't make any difference if you cross the line head first but if you cross in a seated position and the riders hands reach the trigger before the Head hits the finish line it will crash the bike,
Moral of the story... Cross the finish line head first;)
I don't get why anyone crosses the line without being head first lol, but just a heads up if anyone's wondering what went wrong if it seems to cause a crash for no reason ;) sorry bout that.

Lol, yea sorry Jongie, it was actually your replay that clued me into their being a problem in the first place;)
Boss and Rude spent some time looking for a trigger to turn off the lazers lol, sorry guys,
I was going to ask for a removal when first I realized but didn't, wish I did now, can always put up a fix if anyone thinks it's worth it?
But hey ho... head first dudes;)

I did wonder when I crashed at the end of Redline Racers, no biggy though...

As president of the galaxy I approve of the latest tracks. I enjoyed them all.

Congratulations guys I'm honored to be part of such a sweet team. By far the best team on trials in my opinion second I turned 30 I asked to join and bigbow was nice enough to have me.

I've bin asked to join a bunch of teams but I wouldn't leave for anything 😀

It sucks that 360 didn't one single track this week but my complaining will be over shortly getting an X1 this weekend.:)

I have a question do I have to have two Xbox live memberships one for each system? Also I have heard that there will be a trials fusion that has all dlc included plus the awesome level max when does that come out?

Cool, it'll be nice to start playing your tracks on the X1... I still boot up the 360 occasionally to play your tracks and a few others. Your Xbox live membership will roll-over to the X1. When you boot it up it'll ask you to log into your account. :)

My understanding is that there will be a digital version of Trials Fusion Awesome Max Edition available the same day the DLC releases, physical copies will be available in Europe around the same time.

On Redline Racers make sure ur riders head crosses the finishline first before his body.Its some thing in the track ed. ....but dont let that small glitch stop you cuz its a sweet track ! Plus leaning forward @ the finish will help ur ET on all tracks ;)
