Scott’s triathlon talents stem from his family’s running and cycling background, which grew into a triathlon career thanks to some great mentors. We know that with Scott’s meticulous attention to detail in his training and those he coaches, that he took the time to become knowledgeable in all that XRCEL has to offer endurance athletes. XRCEL is proud of Scott’s passion for triathlon, but we are even more proud of him for the community service and causes he donates his time to, including Race2Rebuild.

“We are happy to have Scott, a Jersey Shore native, join our team and to be able to fuel his training and competitions, said Fred Sexton, President and Founder of New World Consumer Products. “As I have said in previous announcements, endurance sports, particularly triathlon, are a core part of our market. Our ability to significantly impact, via our extended release micro-gels, carbohydrate absorption and improve energy conversion potential without the stomach upset that sometimes plagues endurance athletes makes XRCEL a perfect fit for a triathlete. It’s great to see top-tier athletes improve their performance when they are using our revolutionary technology”.
Scott was born and raised along the Jersey Shore. He fell in love with long distance running in his teens which led him to the University of Tennessee on a cross country and track scholarship. After college, Scott continued to work on his running career while managing his brother’s running shop in NJ, Runners High. He succeed at the American elite level lowering his personal best for 10km to 29:12, 1:05:44 for the half marathon, and 2:24 for his debut marathon. In 2008 he caught as he says “a bit of flyer” and was invited to take part in a triathlon training camp under the guidance of legendary coach Brett Sutton. After a few days of camp, Coach Sutton offered Scott a contract to train and race with his squad, Team TBB. Coach Sutton committed three years to his development and at the end of those three years Scott finally began to break through at the professional level of long course triathlon. He has since gone on to achieve multiple podium finishes around the world, running 2:43 for the marathon off the bike at Ironman Switzerland in 2012 and lowering his Iron Distance PB to 8:09 at the 2012 Ironman FL. In 2013 team TBB parted ways with Coach Sutton and Scott decided to work with another legendary coach, Siri Lindley. Siri and Scott have been working together for a year now and in their first season together he was able to earn three top 10 finishes at an Iron distance events in the span of nine weeks including a 3rd place at Ironman Boulder and 2nd place at Challenge Atlantic City.
