We’ve partnered with Microsoft Studios ahead of the release of Forza Horizon 3 to look at what happens when the worlds of action sports and motorsport collide, and how the “leave your limits” attitude crosses over between the two.
Mark Webb is a name that has become synonymous with BMX competition. In my opinion, he is one of the most influential riders in recent history. Over the years, Webbie has carved out a style of competition riding that not only included groundbreaking tech moves, but also huge World first tricks such as the decade to 360. And I believe this aggressive and focussed approach changed the face of competition riding for good, especially within the UK. Webbie is no spring chicken these days, but he shows no signs of slowing down, he is still competing at the very highest levels of BMX, and still showing riders 10 years younger than him that he is still a force to be reckoned with. But it doesn’t end there, he has been progressing with his brand ‘The Webbie Show‘, plus helping develop the Total BMX team and parts, arguably one of the strongest BMX competition teams ever assembled. And if all this isn’t enough, he has just been crowned the 2016 Driftcup drift racing champion. We thought is was about time we asked him a few questions to find out how he keeps at the top of his game in one career, whilst then ‘leaving his limits’ to succeed in another, and why did he make the decision to drift from Two Wheels To Four.
