    "Codes and Secrets"
    ---Infinite Manual and Nose Wheelie---
    Do any trick or combo and land to Manual or Nose Wheelie and keep the X button 
    held down to prolong the trick, then move the directional keys to steer the 
    Manual/Nose Wheelie and slow it down. If you do not oversteer or run into a 
    transition you can keep the trick points going up indefinitely. I have scored 
    over a million points testing this trick out. It is a neat glitch and fun for
    those who are point mongers. You must keep the X button pressed down the whole 
    time to keep the points flowing. It is easier to do this trick using the Manual.
