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.
The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce that motocross racing phenom Ashley Fiolek will speak at the Aug. 19 Opening Ceremony of the fifth AMA International Women & Motorcycling Conference, presented by Harley Davidson and Buell, in Keystone, Colo.
The fact that Fiolek is deaf has never hampered her performance on the motocross track. She quickly demonstrated that she is a serious competitor in the professional ranks when she rode her way to the title in the 2008 AMA/WMA Women’s Professional Motocross Championship. This year has proved to be no different.
