Genki Watanabe on the Fly Racing Swapmoto Podcast


Genki Watanabe on the Fly Racing Swapmoto Podcast

Presented by Fly Racing

Osaka, Japan’s, Genki Watanabe is one of the most stylish guys you’ll ever see on a dirt bike. Less than one year ago, “Wanky” suffered a badly broken leg that was further complicated by compartment syndrome. After nearly losing his limb, Watanabe worked hard to regain strength and rehab himself back to fitness and just a couple weeks ago he earned a silver medal in the Best Whip contest at Norway X Games. We heard that Watanabe would be visiting his sponsors at Seven MX last week so we met up with him to learn more about his career that started as a professional racer in the All Japan National MX Championships. Seven MX’s Roger Larsen joins us as co-host of this show.
