Honda Red Bull 2010 Motocross Team

The partnership of Honda Racing and Red Bull Racing in 2009 netted dozens of podium finishes, race wins, a second and a third in two championships, and a national woman’s motocross title and X-Games Supercross gold medal for Ashley Fiolek-the first woman in history ever to land a spot on the Honda factory team.

Professional motocross racing may be the original extreme sport, and today the sport features more extreme action than ever before. Honda has been at the forefront of American Motocross since the beginning, winning it’s first AMA 250 National championship and amassing an unparalleled race record over the past 36 years. Perhaps that’s what attracted Red Bull’s sponsorship in 2008.

Two talented athletes who fared well in 2009 return to the team for 2010. In last year’s AMA Supercross Series, Andrew Short earned third overall on his CRF450R-his second consecutive third-place showing in the series- while teammate Davi Millsaps finished eighth while fighting back from injury. The AMA Motocross Championship saw Short step up to a career-best second overall in the series standings and Millsaps finished 11th after missing rounds in the outdoor season due to injury.

Returning to the Honda Red Bull Racing team for her second season is women’s motocross racing phenom Ashley Fiolek. American Honda made motocross history by signing the 18-year-old Women’s Motocross Champion to the factory team in 2009. Fiolek won her second consecutive Women’s Motocross Championship and clinched her first-ever X Games Supercross gold medal with the Honda Red Bull Racing team.

Short and Millsaps will again contest both the 2010 AMA Supercross and AMA Motocross series’ aboard Honda’s fuel-injected CRF450R, while Fiolek will defend her number one plate on the all-new fuel-injected CRF250R. Watch for Honda Red Bull racers to climb even higher on the podium in 2010.
