Fiolek to race MiniMotoSX

WMA champion enters minibike race

Women’s Motocross champion Ashley Fiolek will compete in the Maxxis MiniMotoSX at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. May 1.

The factory Honda racer will ride a custom 110cc CHP-designed minibike in the MMW women’s class.

“This is really my first time racing a mini bike at an event like this,” says Fiolek. “I have raced the pit bike race at some of the amateur nationals when I was younger, but nothing like this. I’m really excited to be a part of the MiniMotoSX – it’s going to be so much fun.”

As an 18-year-old, Fiolek became the youngest ever Women’s Motocross Association champion when she captured the title in her rookie 2008 campaign.

WMA champion Ashley Fiolek will compete in Las Vegas at the MiniMotoSX.“I don’t have any experience racing pit bikes at this level, but from what I’ve heard the riders go way fast. So I think the competition’s going to be really good,” says Fiolek. “I’ve been training for the WMA here this summer and FIM in Europe, so I think I am ready to go have some fun – and, of course, try to win.”

In Las Vegas, Fiolek will be competing against top minibike competition such as the defending women’s MiniMotoSX champion Tatum Sik.

“Ashley has no idea how much fun she’s going to have,” says Mike Karsting, vice president of events for MiniMotoSX promoter Source Interlink Media. “We’re thrilled to have her on board and wish her the best of luck this Friday at the Orleans Arena.”
