Stats, Stats, Stats: Houston 2

We’re not going to pretend we’ve reinvented the wheel here as the AMA does produce these statistics, but we know that they aren’t necessarily easy to find and they aren’t laid out in a very easy to read manner, so consider this your one-stop shop just to see who’s doing what after each round.

Chargers vs Anchors
Yup, we’ve brought it back for 2021 just to give an easy overview of which riders went forwards and which riders went back. We try to focus on the guys doing well, and top of that pile is Ken Roczen, which we reckon flew under the radar a bit. Broc Tickle and Kyle Chisholm definitely flew under the radar (unless you’re Troy Dog) while I think everyone is coming round to the idea that Dylan Ferrandis is actually quite a good dirtbike rider.
