Ashley Fiolek to Appear at ASL Expo

Pebble Beach, CA – AMA/WMA Champion and Honda rider, Ashley Fiolek will appear at the American Sign Language (ASL) Expo at the Western New York Event Centre in Buffalo, New York on Saturday November 1 as a guest of her personal sponsor T-Mobile Sidekick.  Born profoundly deaf, Ashley will be a featured presenter and tell her story to show attendees as an athlete whose deafness did not stand in the way of her becoming the nation’s top women’s motocross racer.

Ashley will also be meeting with show attendees and signing autographs in the T-Mobile Sidekick display.  The exhibit will feature an all-new T-Mobile video of Ashley in action on her Honda and have her CRF250R race machine on display as well.

The newly turned 18-year-old from St. Augustine, Florida commented, “I have always wanted to tell my story and encourage the Deaf that they can accomplish anything they want to if they set goals and work hard.  I am thankful that T-Mobile Sidekick has given me the opportunity to do this.”

Ashley will also be appearing at the ASL Expo at the Show Place Arena in Upper Marlborough, Maryland on November 15.  For more information on the ASL Expos, visit
