Thanks for pointing that out, by the way.

This wasn't written today. It was written not long after the race, and at that time Hampshire was still listed as finishing 17th on the AMA site. It must have been a transponder issue or something. I'll tweak that paragraph.

It’s official now. Roczen and Anderson were both penalized 4 points.

There will always be someone who gets left out of the article. It is what it is.

You are correct, but this is only through 2019. This season's stats aren't included yet.

I wouldn’t say it’s necessarily an empty stat, but you aren’t wrong by saying that measuring the actual number of passes a rider makes throughout the race would be more intriguing. However collecting the data for that would not really be that easy. I’d essentially have to count it out by hand using lap charts and whatever else I could find. It’s not impossible, but I’m not sure if I could justify spending that much time on one individual stat. I do want to look more into it as the season goes on, though, and see if I can find an efficient way to count it and include it as well.

The "Positions Gained" stat is based on their first lap position and finishing position. Although Alex did fall back to 21st place at one point and passed several riders back, he started 5th and ended up finishing 10th. The latter two numbers are how the stat is determined. It's the same logic used for the Movers & Shakers piece GuyB is doing this year.

He was grandfathered in until he didn’t score the necessary 25 points to retain it in 2018. As a result of that, he no longer has a career number and has to run whatever two-digit he earns.

A rider can change their career number once after earning it. So hypothetically? Yes, but he won’t do it.

Seely did choose to release his career number a year early so Ferrandis could take it. I’m assuming they had a chat about it.

I don't think those of us who get paid to cover the sport should make mistakes like this either, but it happens to everyone (including me, as evidenced by my mistake about the size of Tomac's points lead). I try to catch errors like that before it goes to publish, but one will inevitably slip through on occasion. Trust me, I'm pretty disappointed in myself whenever someone points out an error I made, especially if it's stats related.

He hasn’t won a moto since hitting his health slump after Florida. That’s what the comment at the end of his section is in reference to. It’d be cool to see him win again after how dire things were looking earlier on in the season. That’s my bad, though, I can see how the wording made it seem like I was talking about his first win of the season. I went back and tweaked it a little bit.

I believe he is slated to fill-in for Bloss until High Point. Past that, I have no clue.

The DNQ is in reference to the Main Event, not the night show.
