Tanya Lindenmuth - Inducted 2013

Tanya Lindenmuth, originally from Bethlehem, PA, is a graduate of the Air Products Developmental Cycling Program, like so many other greats before her. Lindenmuth, a 2000 United States Olympic Team member, had many talents besides being a world class cyclist. She was a cyclist, model, and television host. Lindenmuth, unlike many Olympic Cyclists, did not have major sponsors and endorsements. The United States Cycling Federation provided her with much of her training equipment, coaching and transportation, allowing her to flourish as an Olympic Cyclist and pursue her many national championships and ride in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Additionally accolades for the “uncontested queen of speed in the U.S.” include being named Female Athlete of the Year by USA Cycling in 1997, garnering a spot on the United States National Team in 1998 and winning a gold medal during the 2nd UCI World Cup Season. She once enthused, ” One thing I learned is to race in the moment, where I am. From watching Marty Nothstein seize the moment for the gold medal, I learned that when you see it, you have to take it.” The aforementioned sentiments epitomized the type of cyclist Tanya was.
