Derek Tingle 

I'm a reformed fat guy and a long-time cyclist turned triathlete. After finishing my first (and likely last) Ironman at Lake Placid in 2016, I set my sights on XTERRA in 2017. I finished my 2017 campaign as the XTERRA Southeastern Region Points Champion, punching my ticket to the XTERRA World Championship in Maui.

Target Races: 

In 2018 I will be turning my attention more to the road. My season will start off with the USAT Duathlon National Championships where I'm racing in both the draft and non-draft sprint distance, followed by XTERRA Southeast Championship in Pelham, Alabama before turning my attention to USAT Triathlon Olympic Distance Nationals.
