Scott Tinley - XTERRA Hall of Fame

Scott Tinley was named the second inductee into the XTERRA Hall of Fame. In 1996, Scott competed in XTERRA’s inaugural event, known as Aquaterra at the time. That day, he finished in 4th place and went on to finish in the top 10 in both 1997 and ’98. But more than just an athlete, Scott was one of the early ambassadors for the sport. Tinley was at the sharp end of getting athletes to Maui. When you look at the high level pro’s that came 10 years ago, it is far more impressive than what one, solitary, unusual race with a $5,000 prize list should have attracted. Jimmy Riccitello, Mike Pigg, Wes Hobson, Ray Browning, Pat Brown, Scott Molina, Emilio Desoto, Jeff Devlin, Kenny Glah, Paul Huddle, Michellie Jones, Paula Newby, Sian Welch, Karen Smeyers and more I probably can’t remember. A lot of that participation is because of ST. Tinley also campaigned in the Hawaiian Mountain Tour bike race in Hawaii to promote XTERRA and near the end of his career, he helped found and develop the sport of off-road triathlon.
