Ah got it. Sprint on the stretches, drop to jogging in the turns, uses the Kirk Roll in the apex of the hairpins to quickly change direction. I guess not too bad.
Yeah, you'll get the hang of it. It's not that bad at all. Yes, at first it seems so, because you're thinking your under the pressure of a race. When I first started I was faililng all the time. Once I realized the illusion (that the NPC Racer isn't racing, he's always trotting, never sprinting), I could relax and mosey the whole way. Never had* to roll or do anything more difficult that trot.
*Never had to, I chose to, to keep it fun/exciting, and to more quickly get through all my alts, but that was my choice.

Do you get more rewards during the Snowman fight based on performance, or can you just stand around and get the same stuff as anyone else who actually participated?
I was just standing around after killing maybe 4 snowmen, because I had to go AFK for a few minutes, and came back to a reward window of three items. If that's all you get, period, then I'm not even going to bother.
As mentioned above, you get the same stuff by fighting the snowmen. And the PvP Race only rewards Snow Epohh Tags.
So only option left is to buy the other items or make a BOT and dig for days in hopes you get the other items.
The snowman fight is every 30 minutes and the even is open for around 35 days. thats a long time.
if you want them faster then yes you can buy lobi as with most things in game there is a quick option, but with such a long window and all the items being fairly cheap, all it takes is a little patience.
not much to ask for some pretty nice costumes and items.
