After a very competitive 2009 season, which saw factory Honda Red Bull Racing rider Ashley Fiolek take the championship as well as increased national television coverage, MX Sports announces the 2010 Women’s Motocross (WMX) schedule.
With an increasingly deep field of talent, the series features eight races alongside the traditional 250 and 450 Classes. After introducing the eight-race season last year, the schedule receives a few small tweaks that are designed to broaden the reach and exposure of the WMX Class. The series will visit two new venues in 2010, with the first being at RedBud on July 3, followed by Spring Creek Motocross Park in Millville, Minn. on July 17.
"The action in the WMX Class during the 2009 season exceeded all of our expectations," said Davey Coombs, vice president of MX Sports. "Fans could always count on riders like Ashley Fiolek and Jessica Patterson to provide some of the best racing on the schedule and thanks to the commitment of our title sponsor Lucas Oil, they were showcased on national television. By introducing two new events for 2010, we expect to continue broadening the national exposure by visiting new parts of the country".
The WMX season will kick-off at the season-opening round from Hangtown on May 22 and will conclude Labor Day weekend from Steel City on September 4.
