In a sport dominated by sound, 2x Women's Motocross Association Champion Ashley Fiolek, profoundly deaf since birth, is just starting to make some noise. In 2008, she dethroned five-time WMA Champion Jessica Patterson to become the youngest WMA champion ever. She was the first female rider featured in action on the cover of Transworld Motocross (or any major American motocross publication) and stoof alone to advance women's racing in the US to the next level of performance, recognition and prestige. Not bad for her pro debut, which also featurned a debilitating mid-season broken wrist.

Back-to-Back X Games Golds for Ashley Fiolek


Ashley Fiolek wins back-to-back golds at X Games 16, followed up by her Red Bull teammate Tarah Gieger with a second-place silver medal finish.

After an incredible last lap win in last year’s X Games Women’s Super X final to capture her first-ever gold medal, Honda Red Bull Racing’s Ashley Fiolek was ecstatic to go for back-to-back golds at X Games 16 in the famed Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum this afternoon. Though archrival Jessica Patterson and the most challenging Super X course to date stood between her and the coveted repeat, Fiolek and her factory Honda were dominant in front of the enthusiastic X Games faithful!

Rocketing out of the gate and into a second-place start as the field of women rounded turn one, Ashley wasted no time as she quickly took over the lead early on lap one. Never looking back, Fiolek rode a near flawless race as she led wire-to-wire en route to her second-straight gold medal!

“This feels so incredibly awesome right now,” Ashley commented just moments after the win. “Christmas has definitely come early for me this year. X Games is so fun… This entire experience is great, and I just couldn’t be happier right now. I really want to thank my team for all the hard work, and, of course, all of my supporters for cheering me on. Thank you!”

Behind Fiolek at the checkers, Red Bull teammate Tarah Gieger put in an incredible ride to work her way from a fourth-place start up to a second-place, silver medal finish!
