Wishing Wes and his Family All the Best!



Assistant RAGBRAI Director Wes Hall will be leaving the RAGBRAI staff to become the Director of the Sioux Falls Sports Authority.  For the past 6 years, Wes has worked behind the scenes to help make your RAGBRAI as safe and enjoyable as possible.   Wes is credited for greatly expanding the RAGBRAI Expo into one of the premiere bike expos in the country.  He plans to be back in Des Moines for the Club & Team meetings and the RAGBRAI Route Announcement Party to see all of his RAGBRAI friends.

We hope to see Wes behind the handlebars this summer as he has never had the opportunity to ride RAGBRAI.

We wish Wes, Annie, Sydney and Braden nothing but joy and success in Sioux Falls!

Thanks for all that you have done for RAGBRAI!  We will miss you!

Wes. Congratulations! You’ve gone a long way since Virginia! Looks like those midwest winters have made their mark on you!. Hope to see you this summer on the road, instead of having to work around the EXPO area!
Best wishes to you and the family!
