A backwards on to the Side of B, and B offset from Back to Side. the line of travel. ( for B catching A early.)
Back to Face. A backwards on to the Face of B, and B in line with the line of travel. ( for B catching A late.)
Works when Gymnast A starts back on to the side of B; or back onto the face of B. Gymnast A makes a pike fold and tip entry, in to a backward roll action with an early hip extension, towards a handstand. Gymnast B either moves with gymnast A, to catch the lower thighs early, lifting and holding A in a handstand balance. or gymnast B waits to move in and catch the thighs of A, just as A has completed the backward roll into the handstand. B aims to arrest the motion of A and hold A in a handstand balance.
