X Games 16: Ashley Fiolek Takes Gold

X Games Results

Yoshimura R&D of America’s Ashley Fiolek took home another X Games gold medal in the Moto X Super X Women’s Final last night at the L.A. Coliseum. Fiolek is now a repeat mx gold medalist, winning back-to-back in 2009 and 2010.

Fiolek has been a stand out in motocross since she first appeared on the scene. With her speed, agility, and dedication to racing, she has been a role model for both female and male racers.

Fiolek was hungry for that gold medal and took it home last night after a great race against other great female motocross racers.

Fiolek is also the defending WMX champion and has been putting on a charge for the lead with her Yoshimura-powered Honda CRF250 in the AMA Pro Motocross series.
