2019 TRIWISCONSIN 

BOARD OFFICERS

Board of Directors


Ted Shue (Years of Service: 13)

Certified USAT Coach and a member of the TriWisconsin Board since 2006. Served as TriWi President for 4 years (2006-2008, 2016) and have led the Wednesday evening Track workouts since 2006. I also lead our Wednesday night Pettit runs. I've completed all 17 Ironman Wisconsin events and am obviously addicted to racing in all forms - swim, bike, run. If you've been active in TriWisconsin or the racing community in Wisconsin at all, you know Ted.  

 





Christina Beaupre (Years of Service: 2)

I joined TriWisconsin in 2013 when I decided to get into triathlons, and TriWisconsin's wealth of training opportunities and resources seemed like a great place to start. Since then I've raced in everything from sprints to full Ironman competitions and feel as though TriWi has become a second family.  I really believe in the purpose of the TriWisconsin, and my participation on the board provides me the opportunity to give back to the organization that has given me so much.  For the past two years, I have assisted in many areas of the club including planning and supporting several TriWi's events, soliciting and promoting team sponsors, creating our newsletters and maintaining our website event listings.





Andy Hubbartt (Years of Service: 2)
A veteran triathlete since 2002, and President of TriWisconsin, Andy has raced all distances, from sprint to Ironman. You may recognize him from Wednesday night running (summers in Hart park and winters at the Pettit) or Tuesday night swimming at Nicolet. While he certainly isn't the fastest, his years of experience and craftiness have earned him the nickname "Ninja".  He is looking forward to staying on with the board and continuing all the great programs and events that have made TriWisconsin a great club.





Angie Kaiser (Years of Service: 2)
I have been on the board of TriWi since January 2017, the last 2 years have been a huge learning experience about the board and triathlons, 2017 was also my first year of doing triathlons. I hope to continue the board as the voice for all of us short distance multi-sport athletes, while continuing to enhance our presence on social media. Making TriWisconsin more available to those who have questions and showing what we have to offer for all athletes and abilities. I also manage our inventory and hope to help bring the latest and greatest gear that our members want to purchase to help represent us no matter where our races take us! I have enjoyed my time of the board and hope to continue the board and watch as our group and the sport of triathlon grows.





Noah Rosenthal (Years of Service: 2)
Coming from a running background, I joined TriWI in 2014 after completing my first ever triathlon (the 2013 Pewaukee Sprint), I registered for Ironman Wisconsin 2 months after that 1st race and decided I should probably find some people to help me figure out what in the world I was doing.  I became a regular at winter swims, Lannon rides, track workouts, asked as many questions as I could, and completed IMWI in 2014.

Three years after joining TriWI, completing 2 Ironmans, 6 Half Ironmans, and countless hours training with new lifelong friends I joined the board in 2017.  I wanted to support TriWI & help continue all the great events, workouts, and educational opportunities it has contributed to the triathlon community.  During my 2 years on the board my efforts have focused on running aid stations & the club tent before/during/after rides and races as well as administrative duties such as sending out communication to the team, creating newsletter, soliciting & analysing club member input, website maintenance & improvements, and a lot of the graphic design for TriWi (most notably designing our 2017/18 kickoff shirts, new 2018 soft cotton merch tees, & 2019 team kits from Zoot!)



Ryan Rypel (Years of Service: 2)
I have been a multisport athlete for the majority of my life, starting triathlon at the age of 13. Over the years I have completed many triathlons ranging from super sprints to full ironman distance. As a few of you know I started and ran the Eau Claire Triathlon Club when I was in undergrad. This gives me a unique experience working with USAT and many other triathlon clubs for races and events. Last year I became the TriWi board Vice President and have thoroughly enjoy all my experiences with the club and look forward to working with people to continue to make it a great experience. 






Caitlin Barber (Years of Service: 1)
I starting participating in triathlons in 2013, since then I have completed many races from sprint to Ironman. When I moved back to Milwaukee after finishing school I joined TriWi in 2014. During my time with the group I have met many amazing people and have made great friends. While training for ironman I received lots of support and encouragement from many members of the TriWi family. I would love to give back and pay forward that support to other members on their journeys to achieve their goals.




Michael Wagenknecht
I joined TriWisconsin back in April of 2017. I have long had an interest in endurance sports and finally began my journey as a runner in spring of 2017, by January of 2018 I was finally getting into triathlon with the goal of 70.3 IM in 2019 and a 140.6 in 2020. I trained for several months alone before I worked up the courage to join TriWi (I’m quite introverted so doing this was a challenge). In the end I’m quite glad that I did, the camaraderie, motivation and friendship that came from joining has been invaluable to me as I develop and grow as an athlete. If someone is even just curious about what triathlon or endurance sport is I encourage them to come to a ride or track workout to give it a tri, what you may find is a group of individuals who might become lifelong friends.  




Dan Kordik

I’ve been a member of TriWisconsin since 2013, myself I have raced all distances in triathlons. I like the opportunities that TriWisconsin gives their members through all the different workouts and the course recons. I would hope to help the new members who are joining the sport and the current members the same if not better experiences that I have had. I want to help welcome more people into this support and this tri group. Also working for Lighthouse Events and being behind the scenes for years I feel like I can help to answer questions on triathlons from the very beginner questions to the more technical questions. I hope to be able to bring value from working and racing in the sport for years to help enhance everyone’s experience with Tri Wisconsin.


Lynn Richardson

Several years ago I completed my first Tri and was hooked.  I learned it’s great training with like-minded people that share a passion for this crazy sport. This past season I trained for and completed several big races and found a training tribe.  Training is so much better with friends – especially those long bike rides!   As a back of the pack triathlete, I am thankful for the training opportunities TriWI provides and look forward to continuing with this great team! 

TriWisconsin is a registered 501c3 organization in the state of Wisconsin.  Our mission is to provide its membership and the triathlon community of SE Wisconsin, all the resources and opportunity to participate and improve their participation in triathlon and multi sports activities.
