Perry won’t return to BBC role

"It's not my place to talk about the [BBC MotoGP] line up for this season, but I can't do it" - Suzi Perry.
Long time BBC MotoGP presenter Suzi Perry has denied that she will return to her former role, following the news that Jennie Gow will not be back for a second season.

After 13 years of covering motorcycle racing for the BBC, Perry decided to concentrate on other commitments for 2010.

That prompted the signing of Gow as 'the new face of BBC MotoGP' alongside commentators Charlie Cox and Steve Parrish, plus pitlane reporter Matt Roberts.

Gow's exit fuelled rumours that Perry might be coming back, but in postings on her Twitter account Suzi stated:

“It's not my place to talk about the [BBC MotoGP] line up for this season, but I can't do it. I remain totally passionate and besotted by it.

“I am sure the coverage will be in very experienced hands and I hope to visit a couple of races this year.”

Following a question about her 2011 bike plans, the Gadget Show presenter added: “I'll continue for Telegraph + perhaps a few special reports for BBC.”

I have said this many times already but in response to some of the posts on here i have to repeat myself. Those of you who slag off Eurosport should remember if you can and if you can't listen to people who watched Moto GP in the days when none of the tv companies were interested. Eurosport has brought Bike racing to us every weekend for longer than i can remember. Where else can you watch Moto GP , WSB , BSB Moto X , Trials as well as events from America and before i came on here i was watching the Australian Superbike championships. So before you slag them off just picture life without any Bike racing because if it wasn't for them that's what we would of had. Sure i will get some disagrees but i don't care because i know what i say is true. I have followed Bike racing since the sixties and Eurosport have given by far the best coverage.

The inportant thing about Suzi Perry is that it appeared the riders wanted to talk to her, presumably because she had sufficient interest in the sport to ask decent questions which didn't lead to 'eye rolling' from the riders.I think the majority of enthusiasts would welcome her return, as would I.
