Kenny Roberts,Scotty and Jay Springsteen could never perform like Blake Baggett did last year at Redbud.Its like comparing apples to roast beef.Springer never trained,hence the famous"Smokes and Cokes" quote.Baker deserves props,but guys like Dungey developed they're own regime,while Milsaps credits Yogi Lusk.No disrespect to either Springer or Roberts.
Gotta agree with you pbarmy. In supercross, a trainer probably won't pay big dividens. But outdoors, twenty minutes into the second moto, in 95 degree heat with 80% humidity, having a good trainer who understands endurace atheletes and what it takes to get the most out of them, would be an asset.
Jeremy McGrath never started winning races and championships outdoors until he brought Gary Semics onboard to train him.
