Ashley Fiolek joins LS Motors-Honda’s 2010 Women’s World Motocross effort
Following their successful 2009 campaign, LS Motors-Honda has announced the latest addition to their already impressive line-up for 2010, featuring Tanel Leok and Davide Guarneri in MX1. The Belgian team is proud to continue its partnership with America’s leading lady of MX: Ashley Fiolek. Fiolek (currently age 19) enjoyed an outstanding 2009: ‘Kickash’ added the X Games Moto-X women’s and AMA Pro Women’s Motocross titles to her tally, and rode to two podium finishes in her FIM Woman’s World MX appearances (Bulgaria and Portugal).
Team principal Steven Lettani said: “We’re very pleased to have Ashley with us for the third consecutive season. Not only is she very fast, Ashley also brings a lot of energy and personality to the team. She is an amazing ambassador for our team and the sport. And since we’re still a young team it’s cool to remind people that she was in fact the first to get LS Motors-Honda on a GP podium in 2008!”
For now the plan with Fiolek is to compete at six out of seven WMX races. However if Ashley is on course to a final overall podium in the GP’s, she will race the complete series. LS Motors-Honda will cooperate closely with Ashley and her dad to make sure she gets the same kind of topnotch equipment she’s used to running with the Honda Red Bull Race team in the USA. The agreement with Ashley completes the team for next season. All three of them are talented, proven race winners. Tanel, Davide and Ashley also share the same strong work ethics.
Ashley says: I am so excited to be returning to Europe in 2010 to race for an FIM World Motocross Championship! I’m especially excited to be returning to LS Motors, this is my third year with the team. Steven and Linda make sure everything I need is there, and I am comfortable when I am away from home. I really can’t thank them enough for their efforts, and I think it shows in the results they have achieved in the MX1, MX2, and WMX in a very short time. See you all in April!”
