Bringing the action into homes across the country is a talented lineup of veteran television personalities.

He returns to fulfill the same role in 2011 alongside another familiar name in former AMA Pro Motocross Champion Jeff Emig. "Fro," as many like to call him, gives viewers an insider perspective as to what is taking place in the riders' heads with analysis only a former champion could provide. Rounding out the three-person team is longtime trackside reporter Erin Bates. With considerable knowledge of the sport, Bates will bring viewers the latest breaking news and developing storylines from the starting gate and the pits.
