While I agree with most of what you've said, I have to disagree that the personal trainer is only as important as the suspension guy or a tire changer.
A personal trainer deals with a lot of mental issues like motivation and attitude, both of which are needed to properly train and race. A trainer also deals with stuff from sleep to food, how hard to train, and how much rest between training and races.
