  • Full Loop Wrap (4.46 seconds) – the most popular choice at the event, but may be the slower option
  • Forced Front Cross (4.06 seconds) – creates the s-path, requires getting to the take off side of the backside jump, finishing dog on right reduces tunnel trap
  • German Turn (4.10 seconds) – creates the s-path, does not require getting to the take off side of the backside jump, finishing dog on right reduces tunnel trap
  • Serpentine (4.17 seconds) – creates the s-path, does not require getting to the take off side of the backside jump, finishing dog on left controls the turn but emphasizes the tunnel trap
