Nothstein at N.Y.C. Mengoni GP

Although New York City did not get the 2012 Olympic Games, New Yorkers have a chance to watch an Olympic champion go for the win this Saturday in Central Park. American Marty Nothstein, gold medal winner in the Sydney Games track cycling competitions, leads a very strong field in Saturday's Mengoni Grand Prix bicycle race, to be held in Central Park.

Nothstein, of the Navigators pro team, is bringing top teammates as well - including Russian Olympians Vasilli Davidenko and Oleg Grishkine and the reigning Irish national champion David O'Loughlin. This is Nothstein's final year of racing, and he faces strong challenges in trying to win the Mengoni Grand Prix for the first time in several attempts.
