well - if it's in the way??????? how do you teleport it out of the way?????? did you just type that???????
it would obviously be alone and single handedly (or rather single... leggedly?) responsible for NOT purchasing any edge, if it stays there, in the way... the girl tried to teleport it out of the way by moving it instead of tipping it and we saw what happened... what's left?
what dark anti-logic is this you're conjuring here??
p.s. jasp... what are you... kooking?
I don't think it would work in this case "alone" anyways. Don't confuse a focus and a first movement with nothing else happening. There are cases where it may well work, but here, tipping the inside ski instead of moving out of the way, would merely take it away from under the body and help her engage the outside ski better, throughout the turn. Race coaching 101 in any system: take the inside ski away from under the body, so the racer can commit to the outside...
Note that she was tipping it ok at the very top of the turn and everything was going well until she stopped tipping it and started moving it instead.
BTW This is the same sort of issue I was complaining in that critique of Mr. Lorenz's older videos... of course on a totally different level... and which he later fixed, anyways.
@zentune they have had several coaches, including World Cup level coaches explaining the usefulness of this thing. They will not hear it and instead keep contradicting everyone - why do you think some ordinary race coaches would help? It's not like we understand skiing, is it? The Kooks do, of course - the commentary on the last videos is priceless... i was just taking notes!
