for a basic principal...

outside, inside, outside


hope you already know that though...but there is no substitute for seat time and developing your own ride

Not enough information here...and contrary to what other people have stated there is an answer to your question.

The proper line would depend on what is after said 90 degree turn...is it another turn, set of turns or straight?

You can not decipher what the proper line is without knowing the rest of the equation.

Check out the line building technique videos here:

don't research so much bro, just get out there and learn what you can for the day. you won't be going pro overnight, so take your time and figure things out slowly and smoothly so that you understand the basics. not just knowing...but UNDERSTANDING is the key. for example, i can tell you all the ingredients in mashed potatoes...but it's easier if you understood how to make it.

speed and form will come with seat time, there's no substitute.


if you insist on studying.....watch these two vids. they are about line building which covers your question (generally, not exactly)
