McDonough and Nothstein To Be Inducted Into Hall of Fame This Friday
As another season draws to a close at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center, it is important to remember not only the heroes of the current season, but also those who paved the way for the excellent facility that exists today. On Friday, August 31 two inductees who are both former Olympians and executive directors will be added into the Hall of Fame as members of the class of 2012.
Pat McDonough served as Executive Director from 1989-2003 and helped create the outstanding partnership the track currently enjoys with the community. He played a key role in bringing the 1996 U.S. Olympic Trials, 1997 UCI World Cup, and the 2001 Junior World Track Championships to Trexlertown. During his cycling career, McDonough was a fan-favorite. His crowning achievements in the sport include seven US National Championships and a Silver Medal in the 1984 Olympic Games.
The second inductee is hometown hero and current executive director Marty Nothstein. Nothstein made his way into the sport through the Air Products and Bicycle Racing League community programs. He accumulated a total of 35 US National Championships, four Pan-Am Games Championships, an Olympic Silver in the 1996 games in Atlanta, and an Olympic Gold in the 2000 Games in Sydney. On top of those successes, he won the World Champion’s jersey an astounding three times throughout his career. In his management role at the Velodrome, he has done an exemplary job putting T-Town back on the map as a cycling super center.
