Paul Quesnel is dropping some #stats knowledge on us.

Although Reed has never looked better since he has gotten onto a Honda, the stats still show he had the most success while on a Yamaha. It is a little deceiving because he had so many more main events on the Yamaha compared to the Honda and it’s interesting to see how similar his averages are on a Suzuki compared to the Honda.
Chad's stats indicate his steady consistency.
The great debate. Does Stewart’s problems stem from the unorthodox Yamaha or do they come from something else? Well, the results here show that his win avg. as well as his podium avg. has exponentially declined since he hopped on the Yamaha. Moreover, the sample size from each bike (40 to 47) are pretty close so the findings are all pretty telling.
These results are pretty interesting. While Dungey has more wins and podiums on the Suzuki, his avg.’s are slightly better on the KTM. Unlike the situation with James though, the main events on each bike are not very close so the results suffer a little bit in that aspect. Still, it’s pretty intriguing that his averages are better on the KTM.
The biggest thing that has changed in RV’s program in the past couple years has been the addition of Aldon Baker. The results show that Villopoto has gotten better all the way around since Baker joined his program but what they don’t show is that RV’s rookie season has a lot to do with the lower averages.
RV's big bike stats are improving at an impressive pace.
- Looking at James win average at this point in time (.506), if he ever wants to beat McGrath’s total win count he will theoretically need to compete in about 56 more main events. That’s the rest of this season and about three more.
- Looking at RV’s win average of .389, he would need to compete in about 131 more main events to beat McGraths record. That’s close to about 8 more seasons.
- The previous record for most SX race winners and champions on the same gate at the same time went to Anaheim, 1985, where they had 8 race winners and 4 champions.
