Ep. #9 The Curious Life of Terry Pratt

By Brett Smith

In 1972, Terry Pratt put his life in America on pause to spend 6 months following the MXGP season. 35 years later he published “Grand Prix Motocross: The 1972 Championship season”. Pratt died before he could finish selling his masterpiece but he left behind a trail of paperwork and friends and a story that needed to be told. Pratt is one of the unsung heroes of the motorcycle industry, whose contributions still resonate.

This is the audio version of the feature story “The Curious Life of Terry Pratt”. Read by the author, Brett Smith.
