Marty Nothstein was promoted to Executive Director of the Valley Preferred Cycling Center in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania. The velodrome's Board of Directors named him to the position during the Velodrome Fund Inc.'s annual board meeting on Tuesday.
"I'm so excited to be given this opportunity to lead," said Nothstein. "The Valley Preferred Cycling Center means so much, not only to the world of cycling and to our community, but to me personally, as this is the venue where I was able to build and finish my career as a professional cyclist. I look forward to guiding the facility into the future and showing the community the possibilities that the Cycling Center has to offer."
Nothstein began his career in grass roots racing programs on the velodrome and worked his way up to winning an Olympic gold medal in the match sprint in the Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, in 2000. He was previously occupying position of Executive Vice President of the velodrome.
