Marty Nothstein, Executive Director
Marty is an Olympic Champion, an Olympic Silver medalist, and a three-time world champion in Sprint and Keirin. With an eighteen-year career in bicycle racing coming to a close in 2006, Marty steps down from his role as the greatest track cyclist in the modern American era and into the history books. Born and bred in the Lehigh Valley, he has always called T-town and the Valley Preferred Cycling Center home and is truly enthusiastic about his opportunity to give back to cycling through his new efforts as Executive Director.
A dedication to the Olympic Ideal allowed Marty to train and race at a level that granted unwavering consistency and unmatched results in multiple disciplines. Upon winning Olympic Gold in Sydney, Marty transitioned from sprinting to professional road racing as an integral member of the Navigators Professional Cycling Team.
In accepting the role of Executive Director Marty is fulfilling his personal and heartfelt obligation to help steer American track cycling and the Valley Preferred Cycling Center back into medal contention. His presence at the track brings instant credibility and professionalism to the world’s premier outdoor cycling venue.
