New York City Cycling Championships Results

Nothstein sprints to victory in New York.

United States Olympic Gold Medalist Marty Nothstein of Orefield, PA, beat a charging pack of 15 cyclists and a tremendous downpour before an estimated crowd of 100,000 New Yorkers to win the second annual New York City Cycling Championship in 02:05:42. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /?>


The 31-year-old Nothstein, who won a gold medal in the match sprint on the track at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, overtook runner-up Victor Rapinski of Team Saturn from Belarus just 100 meters from the finish line. David Clinger of TIAA CREF (Prime Alliance) from Woodland Hills, CA finished in third place in the 100-kilometer race through downtown New York.   The trio, who all finished in the same time, crossed the line just seconds before a torrential downpour arrived after a day of racing in humid conditions with temperatures in excess of 90 degrees Fahrenheit.


?Since winning the gold medal in 2000, this has been a big transition from the track to the road,? said Nothstein just moments after winning.   ?With proper training and dedication, I was able to win today one of the biggest races of my pro career.?
