Patrick Gellineau - Inducted 2008

Patrick Gellineau, originally from the island nation of Trinidad and Tobago, was a national champion in his native land and represented his home country in the 1972 Olympics before moving to New York City and becoming a United States citizen. After construction of the new Trexlertown Velodrome in 1975, Patrick became a Friday night regular known for his stamina, skill and competitiveness in the Madison and points races. An amicable, yet fierce and savvy racer, competitors and fans alike soon learned that Patrick was the undisputed champion of the last-lap surprises, often succeeding in out-jumping his opponents in the final lap. His many victories on the Concrete Crater earned him the nickname “Master of Mad Dash.” After hanging up his cleats in elite racing, Patrick continued his winning ways in age-graded track cycling competitions by winning a gold medal in the Men’s 50-54 spring in the 2003 U.S. Masters Track Cycling Championships and a silver medial in the Men’s 55-59 Points Race at the 2008 UCI World Masters Track Cycling Championships.
