Front Layout & 1/2 Dismount

Front layout dismount

Front lay (1/2)
Front layout
Front straight

The front layout and front layout 1/2 get to graduate slightly from the tuck and pike version and receive B value. It’s still not enough to be worth doing, however, which is why you won’t see them, even in the 2017-2020 code where dismounts no longer have to be a minimum of D. That has led to a run on C dismounts, but not so much with the B dismounts.
