BIOGRAPHY

Rider #338
Inspired and mentored by Japanese freestyle motocross legend Taka Higashino, Genki “Wanky” Watanabe hopes to build on the legacy of his countryman by injecting his own sense of style and flair to the world of FMX. Like so many others, Wanky’s career started on the racetrack and soon transitioned to the ramps. With a knack for big air and flow he became a quick study and has racked up a variety of accolades in just a few short years of FMX competition, notably a pair of X Games silver medals in Best Whip and first place in the Biggest Whip contest at the 2019 Monster Energy Cup.
