At only 20 years old in 2014, Dashi Watanabe was already a four-time overall Philippine superbike champion from novice to expert class. He started to have an interest in motorcycle riding when he was barely five years old. Back then, there were no driving schools, and the street was his race track. “I was supposed to be trained in small bike motocross, but I met a terrible accident back then, so I stopped riding bikes for five years. I only came back when I was ten years old, and my parents brought me to the race track, “ said Watanabe. Since then, the race track has been his playground, and he could tell that he grew up there! But still, there was no formal riding school back then. His love for the sport, discipline and natural talent made him excel in motorcycle racing.
