X Games Victory!

Motorcyle racer Ashley Fiolek won X Games gold yesterday in Los Angeles. The 19-year-old Floridian took the lead going through the megaramp tunnel on the first lap of the 15 minute ride and never looked back. She made competition history as the first deaf winner of the Moto X Super X Women's Final last year. Fiolek tells about her journey from deafness at birth to becoming a championship rider in the autobiography Kicking Up Dirt.
