I had no idea who Erin Bates was until reader Thomas emailed me her name. After a brief flurry of googling, I now understand what Thomas saw in her. Yes, she’s a sideline reporter for the Speed Network, and has modeled extensively in the past, including bikini pictures. Those bikini pictures are hard to find, but here are some, as well as others.
Here’s her bio from Speed TV:
Birthdate: June 8, 1978
Birthplace: Kelowna, BC, Canada
Residence: Salt Lake City, Utah
Erin Bates joins SPEED’s AMA Supercross broadcast team for the 2006-07 season as a pit repoter. Erin’s career in motorcycle racing began as a trophy girl on the International Freestyle Motocross Association but she quickly moved behind the microphone and became a co-host on the FMX tour. Since 2003, Erin has been the in-stadium live announcer for Supercross, and has been a pit reporter for AMA Supermoto and AMA Motocross on OLN.
