Board of Directors
Ted Shue (Years of Service: 12)
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 and occasionally lead the Sunday spin workout. I've completed all 14 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.
Jeff Mahuta (Years of Service: 3)
I’ve been a member since 2011, and I really enjoyed being on the board this last 2 years as treasurer. This past year, I have been more involved with the group bike workouts along with the winter swims. The next year I would like to grow our relationship with Ironman to bring our members a better experience at their events and use that knowledge to help our members at all triathlons. I’m still not very good with names, but I’m getting much better.
Christina Beaupre (Years of Service: 1)
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. In 2017, I assisted in planning and supporting many of our training events as well as helped with the newsletter and the listing of events on our website.
Andy Hubbartt (Years of Service: 1)
A veteran triathlete since 2002, and Vice 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 re-starting the Tri-Newbies program in 2018.
Angie Kaiser (Years of Service: 1)
I am a lifelong runner since 1998, and have been participating in the multisport of duathlons since 2012. After many years I finally pulled the plug and signed up for my first triathlon, St George Utah’s half ironman with Tri WI. I also have plans for Elkhart lakes sprint, and Steelhead’s Half Ironman. I hope that I can bring a new prospective to the board being a newbie to the Tri world but someone who has been around the sport of racing for a long time. I love being involved in the racing community and I look forward to what I can learn as I join the Tri world and mesh it with the knowledge I have of competing.
John Maniaci (Years of Service: 1)
I have been a member of TriWi since 2000. I have enjoyed the work of the officers and board all these years. I am now semi-retired and want to give back to this great organization. As a business owner, I wore many hats and would like to apply that experience to TriWi.
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: 1)
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 found TriWi by accident 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 5 years ago, 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.
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.
