You have stated before how you think Aldon Baker is overrated (unnecessary?) but if it is working and the rider believes in the benefits who are you to question it?

........ meanwhile, Flug's hero (the one who deemed Aldon Baker as unnecessary) is getting beaten by Alessi on a privateer Suzuki.

who was RV's trainer in 2007?

2007
Villopoto started the season with a dominating performance in the AMA Supercross Lites West Series, where he won seven of the eight races. He carried his momentum into motocross, winning his second-straight AMA Motocross Lites Championship. To cap off a perfect season, Villopoto became the first rider in history to win the overalls in both motos on KX250F against larger 450cc motorcycles at the Motocross of Nations.

2008?

2008
Earned his third consecutive AMA [motocross] 250cc Championship by winning eight events and finishing on the podium in 11 of 12 starts. Finished second in the AMA Supercross Lites East Series with three wins and five podiums in seven starts. Claimed the MX2 championship at the Motocross of Nations helping Team USA earn the team title for the third consecutive year.

Aldon Baker is a free loader.

It was his Dad, I would assume.
After RV got married he separated from his family.
Sounds like Baker is a good replacement.

In multiple interviews, I have heard both RC4 & RV2 credit their fitness level and motivation to train to Aldon Baker.

Whose opinion am I going to trust, the multi-time champions that paid him for his services year after year, or yours?

I don't give a shit who's opinion you trust. These are the two most dominant riders in the last dozen years and both won without him so that makes him insignificant.

He was only challenged a bit by YoT for a short time, but really owned the lites until LaRocco got his program full steam with solid backing.

A couple more teams like them would be awesome for the sport.
