Marty Nothstein - Inducted 2012

Born and raised in Trexlertown, Marty “The Blade” Nothstein began his cycling career through the developmental programs at the velodrome and showed just how successful T-town’s community programs can bed. He has come to be regarded as the greatest track cyclist in the history of the United States, setting World and Olympic records on his way to over 35 U.S. National Championships, four Pan Am Games Championships, three World Championships an Olympic silver in the 1996 games in Atlanta, and Gold in Sydney in 2000. Nothstein’s 150 plus wins are a credit to his panache, passion, and drive to succeed. There was nothing like watching Nothstein race; his display of power and speed always brought crowds to their feet. Nothstein had an unwavering commitment to T-town. He never relocated for training, carruing out his “Rocky Balboa” type training in the Lehigh Valley. He proved that everything is necessary for success in cycling was available here. Nothstein truly epitomizes the best “end result” of the Velodrome and its developmental programs.
