Points collected are the same, and the overall doesn't mean anything but for bonus money really, but 2nd moto is the deciding moto for the day.

What Skwidd said.

Here's a cut and paste from the AMA rule book

6. Points awarded per moto are 1 point for first, 2 points for second, 3 points for third, etc. The rider accumulating the fewest points after both motos is the overall class winner. In case of a tie, the winner is the rider with the better finishing position in the final moto

The Ryans are really closely matched, Villipoto has a slight advantage thanks to his trainer . No one else in their league though.

Bubba placed no value on Mr. Baker and soon after his results faltered.

Villopoto, a racer with the mind of a champion, took Bubba's discards and upped his game. - Which is the same intelligent muti-championship winning plan that the "G.O.A.T." went by. - Ricky's mother is the one that recommended he hire a trainer. His father said he went from a "fat boy" to an athlete. - Under the the direction of Aldon Baker, Carmichael dropped twenty pounds and got fit. The rest is SX/MX history. Great championship winning minds think alike.

Flug, read the end of the article where he talks about mandatory drug testing.

I'm not saying being fit isn't an edge I never have. I'm saying Aldon Baker is bound to "look good" when he hitches his wagon to the gravy train being driven by the #1 laser beam on the planet. It's not real complicated RV won without him.

Aldon Baker has been involved with some of the top riders in the sport of supercross for a long, long time now. This South African who’s specialty was bicycle racing and personal training, hooked up with Ricky Carmichael for the 2000 season and the two of them combined for a ton of championships and race wins. When RC retired, it was on to Ben Townley for a few years and then James Stewart. After those two parted ways, people watched with interest as Baker moved over to Ryan Villopoto’s camp.

Aldon’s off-season work with Villopoto can be seen in the fact that RV has never been this sculpted before. Early on this season, RV has two wins and the sx points lead as I write this. I got a few minutes of Baker’s time to talk about his deal with RV and his split from Stewart.


Me: Aldon, can you tell us about your deal working with Ryan Villopoto?

Aldon Baker: He approached me actually and the thing was when I was approached by Ryan, right out of the gate, he mentioned the areas he's got to be pushed. That’s a cool thing when the athlete knows his strengths and weaknesses. Also his girlfriend Kristen also gave me some feedback, which was awesome because you then get a fair idea of how much pushing he needed and what was going to be in place. Because I didn't start with him until November, we didn't have a lot of time to kick it in and had to go straight into it, getting a good plan together, and moving it forward from there.


The guy has always had the ability and speed but hasn’t been in the shape to let that really loose because that’s an area that has been holding him back and well out of balance. I think coming through that, and just a sense of confidence in your fitness and your ability, because now he doesn’t get tired like he used to and knows he’s still going to get fitter, and we've got areas that will improve through time and that’s good. It’s a real big turnaround. We just keep honest and maintaining his side of all the little pieces and make sure that’s covered.

I don't necessarily think that the laser thing is as big a deal as all that, but in this case I'm a fan of the ruling. We can just call it karma.
