The Debutants
By:
Troy

National #2-50

I’m a sucker for statistics and I always have been. I enjoy searching and looking up old stats in mostly basketball, football, and baseball, and of course motocross. However, I don’t think that last one would come as a surprise to any of you. I just don’t look up hockey stats…sorry boss. I’ve recently been into checking out debuts and how far riders have come or gone since then. It’s always exciting when that top notch amateur rider makes the leap into the pro ranks and I still enjoy it. Below I’ve compiled a list of every rider’s debut from national #2-50. Next week we will give you #51-99. I don’t really know what else I will add to this list, but stay tuned I may scrape some more data.
