Go through the course once, not in order to win, but in order to familiarize with the layout. Note where the grind rails(Speed shortcuts, since you'll be using Sonic on Blue Star II) are located throughout the course.
When actually racing against Jet, be in control of your Air meter and boost efficiently, yet make sure you retain enough Air to last you to the next Automatic Trail / grind rail / ramp. On these three, do your best(rotating the Control Stick / take every grind rail / get a high jump score through tricks) to get as much Air as you can.
Take every single shortcut you noted. Also, when you ride the turbulence left by the fighter planes, when you see red arrows to the sides, use them to do a trick off the turbulence. This will drastically increase your speed on the turbulence track.
Finally, note the position of the 100-Ring capsule, and do a long jump(A-button charged jump with Control Stick tilted forwards) off the optional ramp in front of it to collect it. Do this preferably in the first lap, as the levelups attained by doing this will be very helpful in putting some distance between you and Jet.
If you manage to do all of this, you will be able to beat Jet without much trouble.

There are many ways to beat him but overall you must try your hardest. Jumps off of ramps are key into getting air and speed. Since Jet is fast, speed is key to have in order to beat him. Also, using turbulence to your full advantage is helpful. When the planes break the ground and you ride their turbulence in the sky, use the sides to jump and get speed and air. You should see arrows on where to jump but to do this successfully, you should move on the turbulence side to side. When you grab on the plane, spin the control stick very fast to regain a lot of air. Use the rail or turn successfully using your skills and from here on use boosts. When you get to the last turn before the finish line, BE CAREFUL!!! Use your skills to turn this corner and make sure you are not going too fast or you'll fall off. Make the jump off the ramp and dash to the finish line. Be sure to pick up many coins to get air and more boost chances and speed. If you are behind him, try to hit him with an attack while boosting to slow him dramatically and lose all his rings and go down to low air. If you do these things and master them, you can beat Jet. Hope this helps!

you should dash more often and when he gets to close up behind u: drop a Tornado and don't forget to master the shortcuts

The thing is grinding. You use the characters motives such as speed,power,and fly. Speed can grind,but to do so first you hold and jump with a but do not let go of the button or before you hit the ground quickly press and hold for 2-6 sec!

First you should try Free running this stage meaning: Don't play the level to win, just try to figure out the stage design. next you should:
find out Sonic's character specific shortcuts
learn to curve really well *Sonics new board that tails gives him actually has less curving ability then Sonic's old board so you're going to have to get used to that. Sonic's new board does not work well in this stage because its actually ment for straighter surface stages and Slight curving stages. so watch the turnings!* Make sure to watch Air consumption and boost only when neccesary. E.G: near character specific skill, near long lined turbulence, near refresher points *NO NOT PIT STOPS*, and near Main Ramps.
Also P.S believe it or not Wave is actually faster then Jet. Sonic Team messed with the AI so that it would seem that jet is harder then Wave but you proll already knew that =D

If its about story mode use all he sort cuts u can find (double tap A) , dont use pit stop s unless wen emergency , wen youre about to fall while drifting, release your drift imediate, other wise retry the whole stage. cant afford to fall even once. if some is in front of you use the boost(if you can) and attack it actually heals you up.
