Rock 105.3 Team Rider Desiree Bates is no stranger to off-roading. Growing up in our local deserts she has spent a lot of time on many off-road vehicles from 3-wheelers to a 2280 Volkswagen dune buggy built by her father, off roading is in her blood.
Desiree is the founder of the Fight For Ocotillo Wells, an acting board member of the San Diego Off-Road Coalition and a board member for the Friends of Ocotillo Wells. In 2015 she also won the American Motorcyclist Association Off-Road Rider Of The Year Award and was inducted to the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame for her activism with the Fight For Ocotillo Wells and engaging local off-roaders.
Desiree also races our local racing District 38 and is currently #1 in the amateur class on a 2017 Beta 300RR backed by Dan Barker
