My next guest on MotoStarr Video Podcasts is not only the first American to win an Isle of Man TT, but has been racing continuously since 1972 and became the "Padrino" of Classic Bike racing in America. He probably has more hours on these Classics than the racers who originally campaigned them back in the day.

This man was the first AMA Superbike Champion, and the second, and the third. He also raced sidecars in the Isle of Man, started the preeminent motorcycle riding school in the USA, which at age 82 he continues to teach, and I'm told, he continues to be very, very fast! Reg Pridmore is one very rounded motorcycle competitor and an inductee into the AMA Hall of Fame.

Dick Mann, who passed away April 26th 2021, will always be remembered as one of, if not the, most versatile American racer. Revered by many of his peers, Dick won the Daytona 200 twice in consecutive years and was AMA Grand National Champion twice. He raced the dirt tracks, road races and competed successfully in the International Six Days Trial. We hope this podcast introduces Dick Mann to a world who never knew him, and brings back great memories to those that did.

He has been close to the most influential legends, Giacomo Agostini, Kenny Roberts, Barry Sheene and even today with Rossi and Marc Marquez. I doubt that there has been anyone as close to the epicenter of the world road racing championships as Nick Harris. Join us as he shares some of his greatest memories.
