🎉 New TrainerRoad Community Manager 🎉

Hey everyone!

After 4 awesome years at TrainerRoad, I will be stepping out of my Community Management role to pursue a career in Mechanical Engineering. Watching the forum grow and blossom into the amazing community it is today has been the most rewarding part of my job over the past few years, and I’m immensely proud of what I’ve helped build and the culture I’ve helped to foster here in the forum.

I’m very excited to announce that we have a new TrainerRoad Community Manager who will be jumping in to fill my shoes right away, and that is @IvyAudrain. Ivy is based out of Missoula, Montana and has a TON of racing experience. For the last 12 years, she’s raced a wide range of disciplines from cyclocross to XCO to road racing at the Domestic Pro and UCI levels.

I’ll let her tell you more about herself but let’s all make her feel welcome!!

I appreciated all that you offered from your posts and help in admin duties along the way. You will be missed, but good luck as you more forward :smiley:

Also, welcome to @IvyAudrain
Side note, great to have another Montanan on board here (I’m in Billings). I should try to get out there and ride with you some day. :smiley:

Thanks for the warm welcome, @Bryce!
I’ve definitely got some big shoes to fill, and you’ll be missed by all of us at TrainerRoad and here on the Forum.

To our Forum community: I’m super stoked to be here with you all, and to be part of what feels like a great network of athletes from so many different walks of life! Community is one of my favorite aspects of cycling, and I look forward to connecting with you all, sharing perspectives, and contributing in any way I can to help us all get faster and be better athletes!

Please direct all singlespeed cyclocross inquires my way, it’s my area of expertise :joy:. So glad to be here, thanks for the warm welcome, all!

Chad! We definitely need to meet up and ride soon. By Montana standards, we’re basically next-door neighbors, right?!

So excited to be here on the Forum with you all, and thank you so much for all you do here! TrainerRoad FAM for sure! :raised_hands:

Am I the only one thinking it should be Chad McNeese as he already helps more people than any tr employee as is?

Either way, welcome on board to the new member.

Hopefully see you in 2021 for some MFGs? Fingers crossed!

I haven’t been here long (April 20) but I’m very surprised he doesn’t have a star on his avatar.
He’s way more valuable than his self deprecating title of ‘forum rat’ would suggest!

Maybe we need to start a petition. No offence to Ivy of course. :grin:
