Andy Lakatosh:
Born: 4/22/85
Andy lives less than a mile from the Lehigh Valley Velodrome where he began his cycling career as a Pee Wee Peddler in the Air Products Developmental Cycling Program. Since that time, Andy has compiled quite a list of accomplishments and is recognized as one of the top junior cyclists in the country. At the age of 15, he is already a 4-time Jr. National Champion and holds 4 National Records!

In 2000, Andy won two Jr. National track titles for the Olympic Sprint and the Men 15-16 Omnium. He also broke the national records for his age group in the 200m and 500m time trials; records he holds for Men 13-14 as well. This makes him the only junior man to hold four individual national records! In 1999 he also became the youngest person to ever qualify and compete in Elite Nationals at age 14.

2001 promises to be a busy and exciting year for Andy. Besides competing at Jr. Nationals, he hopes to have the opportunity to race in his first international competition. He will also be competing every Friday night at the Lehigh Valley Velodrome.

His long term goals include the Junior World Championships in 2002 and 2003, and hopefully the Olympics someday. He is coached by Marty Nothstein and Gil Hatton.

Andy is a high honor student at Parkland High School and in his Œspare¹ time he enjoys barefoot waterskiing, hunting, rock climbing and roller blading.

Andy Lakatosh just took the Silver Medal at the first ever Kerin competition at the Junior World Track Championships in Melbourne, Australia.  Andy was also highly successful at this year's US National Track Championships; winning the Men's 17-18 Match Sprint, Men's 17-18 Kilometer, Junior Men Keirin, and Olympic Sprint.
