Avoid 1st place shells and POW blocks!
To avoid the blue spiny shells, or "1st place shells", you need to have a mushroom. When the shell goes up when it is about to hit you, use the mushroom, and the shell will explode behind you and leave you untouched.
When a POW block appears and starts to count down, start shaking the Wii remote like you are about to do a trick. This will allow you to keep the speed up and only spin around once. WARNING: don't do this when you are about to go around a turn, because it will only make you crash
