BBC MotoGP Suzi Perry out, Jennie Gow in

Jennie Gow, 32, to replace Suzi Perry

THE BBC has announced Jennie Gow will be the new female face in the company's MotoGP TV commentary line-up for the 2010 season.

Gow, 32, is said to have 'extensive background in newspapers, radio and television, presenting motocross and speedway’.

"It's a dream come true," she told BBC Sport. "It's the most amazing opportunity for anyone who's into bikes, I can't wait to meet every rider and every person involved with it - there isn't a rider I'm not looking forward to meeting.  (hope for me yet then - Ed)

"I call myself an honorary biker - I've got a lot to learn, and I'm very aware of that, but hopefully the biking community will welcome me.

Gow replaces Suzi Perry, who recently announced her retirement after 13 years on the show. You can see our Suzi Perry picture gallery here.
