"Ashley Fiolek's not just good at motocross for a girl...she's flat-out good. She is a tough, confident, competitive racer who has overcome enough in her life to know that nothing is impossible."
--Travis Pastrana, nine-time X Games gold medalist and host of Nitro Circus

Called "a crusader for gender equity in her sport" by the New York Times, 2008 Women's Motocross Champion Ashley Fiolek's inspiring memoir about her life-long deafness, her triumph over adversity, her rise to the top of her male-dominated extreme sport, and how her family and Christian faith helped her get there. Fans of motocross and extreme sports, as well as readers who enjoyed memoirs such as Bethany Hamilton's Soul Surfer, will be inspired by Kicking Up Dirt.
