When you watch Ashley Fiolek dominate a race with a combination of skill and fearlessness, it’s pretty amazing.
It’s even more impressive when you learn that she’s been deaf since birth.
But while being hearing impaired has led Ashley to make certain adjustments, it’s never held her back. Since turning pro in 2008, Ashley has racked up a list of victories and championships that make her the most dominant force in the world of women’s motocross today.
She’s a two-time WMA champion, as well as the youngest ever. A two-time X Games gold medalist in Super X. The first woman to be signed by the Honda Red Bull Racing Team or featured on the cover of Transworld Motocross magazine.
And while her victories on the track have won her admiration in the motocross community, her sunny disposition and friendly personality have won her legions of fans.
With all that she’s achieved in the world of motocross, Ashley can already claim an impressive career. But for her, it’s only the beginning.
