2019 TRIWISCONSIN BOARD
Board of Directors
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.
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.
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!
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 (including team shirts & 2019 team kits)
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.
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.
