Rosalina gasped in shock as she realized a sharp turn was growing closer to her. She entered a drift to take on the curve, the tires of her hog sliding against the pavement. She had been distracted by something on the side of the road, but now that she had her full attention on the track, she was sure to be OK.

She was distracted again when Yoshi came zooming up behind her, taking her eyes off the road for just a second. She looked ahead once more and noticed a green turtle shell that was sitting idle on the track in front of her. It was too late to turn and avoid it, so she hit it straight on.


She turned to look behind her and saw the shell lying in broken pieces.

She finished second.
