So my DD just informed me that she is doing a piked flyaway dismount and it got me curious… How much “Pike” is too piked? Like should her feet go all the way to her face? Should it be more like a 90° angle? This is more just a mom question from curiosity (don’t like to have her discuss too many details with me so I thought I would ask y’all). Thanks.
 
There is no deduction for too much pike, though too much will cause the body to rotate faster which can negatively affect the execution of the flyaway. There is a deduction for "insufficient pike", should be minimum 135 degrees, ideally 90 degrees.
 
Thanks. Just didn’t know what to look for when she competes it and I’ve seen such a variety of angles.
