I think the problem is that for Ted to get from here, where the BTE is holding the line
Where he could potentially actually be on both BTEs..., he has already released the turn - the old outside BTE has no weight and won't bend a WC GS ski. So it would do him no good to be on it.
OH NO - he's not a-framed but in fact bowlegged, tipping and pulling back that new inside ski like a madman. oh no... wrong transition
What about this one:
Which edge will engage next - right foot BTE or left foot LTE?
I'm suggesting right foot BTE is all...
where he is in a bit of an A-frame, No... the uphill ski is on neither edge... neither is the downhill ski to be honest.
Do you have some samples of this big A-framed transition with weight on both BTEs? Because I've seen some really weird stuff asserted on this here thread...
There is some truth to what you're suggesting though. It's more often encountered in SL , because of the quickness of the transition and the forces involved. It is true mastery to end a turn on one ski while starting the new one on the other ski. Some of that visible in the snapshots I just posted a few posts up - but if you look carefully, the movements to GET THERE were started much earlier (in relation to the timing of the transition).
We should probably note that often in GS the stance in transition is wider than ideal and that itself creates an A-frame no matter how hard the athletes tip the inside ski. You can see that to some extent in the stills above, the distance between the boots. Also the release type may create the appearance of an A-frame, but with no relation to those reasons you mentioned... there's a lot of stuff to take into account when analyzing these.
While this is a looooong, thread, I've made just one post in this thread and my post did not claim:
"big A-framed transition with weight on both BTEs" as you wrote above.
I'm talking about this, with this footage from Beaver Creek 2015 GS (at about 30 seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxKJBt38HWw
In the first frame (I've cropped out the gate) Ted is on his right foot BTE and wants to get
to the BTE of his left as soon as he can to carve the top of his upcoming left - foot turn
In frame two - four you can see his right ski is actually off the ground probably
due to terrain more than intent, and his left ski / left leg are preparing him to arc back across the hill.
(I believe the slight wedging is a consequence of trying to get on his left foot BTE as soon as he can)
By standing on his left leg as early as he can, he can move his body
down the hill / inside his feet, allowing both skis to carve.
the next frames show both skis more and more aligned (and lower to the snow)
as he arcs around the next gate. The first one below DOES
show a bit of a frame, as he has greater edge angle on
his left ski, which he will "equal up" once the hips get inside / both feet get outside.
