Pat McDonough - Inducted 2012

Pat McDonough’s career at T-Town began in 1978 when he represented the U.S. at the Junior World Championships, which were held at the Velodrome. Throughout his career he won an impressive total of seven U.S. National Championships. His crowning achievement was a Team Pursuit Silver Medal in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games. His career in cycling came full circle when he became the Executive Director of the Lehigh Valley Velodrome. He was instrumental in making T-town famous while reinforcing the venue’s role in the Lehigh Valley. Under McDonough’s leadership from 1989-2003, the Velodrome made the transition from a privately funded venue to a thriving private-public partnership. The Velodrome’s rapid growth during McDonough’s tenure brought many world-class competitions including the U.S. Cycling National Championships, the 1996 U.S. Olympic Trials, the 1997 UCI World Cup of Cycling and the 2001 Junior World Championships, to T-town.
