2010 AMA Women’s National Motocross Championship Schedule

After a very competitive 2009 motocross season, which saw Honda Red Bull Racing’s Ashley Fiolek take the championship, MXSports announces the 2010 Women’s Motocross (WMX) schedule.

The 2010 AMA Women’s National Motocross Championship series will visit two new venues in 2010: RedBud & Spring Creek.

“The action in the WMX Class during the 2009 season exceeded all of our expectations. Fans could always count on riders like Ashley Fiolek and Jessica Patterson to provide some of the best racing on the schedule and thanks to the commitment of our title sponsor Lucas Oil, they were showcased on national television. By introducing two new events for 2010, we expect to continue broadening the national exposure by visiting new parts of the country” said Davey Coombs, vice president of MXSports.

The WMX season will kick-off at the season-opening round from Hangtown on May 22 and will conclude Labor Day weekend from Steel City on September 4.

Missing MX/SX racing

Hey Ya’all

Just sitting here thinking about MX. I just got back home from knee surgery, after a violent MX practice day. I won’t be able to ride for about three months. Aleast I’m not dead or handicaped from wreck.



The reason I’m writing this blog is, I’ve been think alot about the sport.I love to ride, I’m not the best but I love the rush the challange. I’m 47 yrs old stay in shape so I can still ride. I’m hope I recover quickly so I can get back out there.I think that people that don’t ride just don’t get why we ride. We all know that only a sellect few can ride to be pro’s. So it’s not for the money that so many people of all ages ride. We were involved with trying to get my son to pro level, spent lots of money, had lots of fun, now he is at MMI, But still loves to ride. All the tracks I go to ride at there are people of all ages out there, all different riding levels.



I’ve met alot of great people on my travels, everyone helps each other, talks about who’s the best pro riders. Share mechanic tips and have a great fun. So I don’t think age has anything to do with it, or that the older guys are trying to be younger than they are. I think that MX/SX riding is something that gets in your blood and you just love it. So I’ll be back riding as soon as I can.



Thanks

Mike B.
