Sometime in year 2086 all extreme sports have been banned including skateboarding, BMX, surfing, rollerblading, and scooters. This banning has forced a major television company to create a reality TV show involving racing bikes for your life coined “Toxic Grind”. During this time all of the racers get killed off so the network builds a time machine to recruit some new riders from the past. You play as Jason Hayes, BMX star of the 20th century who is kidnapped and pumped with toxic chemicals insuring you do all the cool tricks to your ability on the game show or your insides will internally combust. You ride a bike, performing tricks to complete missions to advance through the stages of the game. You also have to do battle with your toxic meter which increases if you give a sloppy performance and decreases when you're excelling with your performance. Multiplayer modes include Quick Draw, Score War, Turf War, and Tug of War(in which players each start with a certain amount of points and do tricks to take the other players points away.)
