The time attack races in particular were very difficult for me in R3. If the bronze medal times were a little easier to get then advancing in the game wouldn't be so hard. There was a race in R3 on the Nurburgring where despite spending a couple hours at it, I was still 12 seconds short of the bronze medal time. That's just ridiculous. A player of average competency who can keep the bike upright and pointed in the right direction should be able to get the bronze. They can keep the silver and gold times where they are. Just ease up on the bronze.
