Getting Gold in the Vespucci Canals Race

Getting gold in this race is pretty straightforward once you know what to do. At the start line, pull back on the stick and wheelie or mod to get extra acceleration from the bike. As you come to a corner, drop into Franklin’s ability, ease off the gas and steer around the corner. Avoid accelerating around corners and use Franklin’s ability sparingly.

Throughout the race, there are several opportunities to hit top speed, but be careful when threading through traffic and avoiding obstacles like street poles and bridges. Slow down for turns, and aim to line yourself up to avoid hitting walls or falling off your bike.

Once you’ve completed a clean lap without any mistakes or crashes, just repeat the same process until you win the race. At the end of the race, you should have earned a gold medal if you followed the right steps.


If you’re struggling to get gold in the Vespucci Canals race, just remember to use Franklin’s ability to your advantage, avoid acceleration around corners, and be careful when threading through traffic and avoiding obstacles. By following these tips, you’ll be able to win the race and earn yourself a well-deserved gold medal in GTA 5’s story mode with Hao.

a message from howe inviting you to a race these races are available overnight between 8 pm and 5
am now on the way to the race it’s important that you max out franklin’s ability you can do this by
passing very close to other vehicles while driving quickly so let’s pick it up from the start line
pretty slow start on that one i’m not super happy with it but that is okay but you can see here what
we’re doing is just pulling back on the stick and wheeling or modeling so that we can get just a
little bit of extra acceleration out of the bike and then what we’re going to do as we come to the
corner is drop into franklin’s ability ease off the gas and you can see the back firing there and
then just steer around the corner don’t accelerate just steer and you can see we are already miles
ahead so we’ll do it again here so you can see every time the muffler flashes there i’m coming
off the gas and just steering around the corner so we’re not accelerating around the corners at all
but we do have the advantage with this of franklin being able to break on a dime so we’ll zip through
here there are a lot of straights in this so we do spend a lot of time at top speed which
is fantastic but we’ll come through here and then we just need to be really careful through here to
thread through traffic and not hit the wall on the other side so again once we’re through as soon as
we we get upright we get off franklin’s ability onto the gas and away we go so we’re really using
his ability quite sparingly here flat out down here just pull back to mono if you’re able to
accelerate anymore watch out for traffic and we will have another turn coming up pretty soon so
ease off slow down for this one as well because you will come unstuck very very easily
avoid the stoby pole and then aim for the bridge
line yourself up make sure that you don’t go sideways on that bridge otherwise
it will become very very bad very very quickly and now we just need to do another clean lap
so again just a reminder ease off the gas into franklin’s ability or vice versa don’t accelerate
around the corners just steer and then you will remain in reasonably good control of the bikes
so coming up on one of the last turns we want to slow down for this one line yourself up and then
straight over the bridge and that is first and golden can’t believe the rubber banding on that
but two minutes and 41 seconds i’m pretty happy with that one so what are your thoughts do you
