Motocross super fan and statistician Chris Westfall has spent countless hours determining who, statistically, is the best motocross rider to ever strap boots on. Check out his statistics and the formula he used to determine them. Keep in mind this list is determined by Westfall's statistical report, and not by the Racer X editorial staff. But it's a facinating read.
