If it's only speed stopping you and you are capable of running, distance skills would solve your problem. The only time I've seen a handler *need* 2o/2o is when they had a handicap that prevented them from moving through the course.
Nothing wrong with a 2o/2o, but I have seen some REALLY speedy border collies handled with nice running contacts, given enough information ahead of time.
