(edited: )

If you quickly tap the Control Stick in the opposite direction and then input a backdash you will obviosly do a "frontdash" instead.
Combined with the option that you can cancle the long end of the backdash by inputting a jump you will get slightly more momentum to reach spot you wouldn't reach with just a jump followed by a teleport.
That option is actually faster than just runnig in some situations.

(Here is some gameplay of me using that. I haven't mastered that strategy yet, but it will surely be faster with that. I guess so.)

Thanks for sharing. This is a nice find to shave some extra time off this mode. Hopefully, someone who runs this will find the tech useful in their endevours.
