The return to Star Racing Yamaha isn't just a nostalgic trip down memory lane for Webb, but a calculated strategic move. Star Racing Yamaha has seen consistent growth over the years, fostering talent and creating champions. Their reputation in the motocross industry as an innovative and competitive team has only grown, making them an attractive destination for riders looking for success.
Given Webb's intimate knowledge of the Yamaha system, his transition back should be smoother than most.
