Inspiration of the Week

Red Bull Profiles

Check out this great story about Ashley Fiolek, the new 18-year old motocross sensation. But she isn't just any ordinary motocross race, Ashley has been deaf since birth. But last night, she made her X Games debut and took home the gold. Ashley was supposed to race in last year's game but was forced out due to an injury.

Ashley is such an inspiration. Sometimes we take our own senses for granted or we rely on them too much. She definitely has to feel her motorbike as she races. She practices and perfects how to feel her bike and I'm sure that definitely makes her a better rider. We will most definitely hear more of Ms. Fiolek. What a great story!
