Graettinger, IA (KICD)– A man died near Graettinger while taking part in RAGBRAI on Monday.

RAGBRAI Medical Director Bob Libby says while the exact cause of death is unknown the 63-year-old
died due to a medical condition and not from a traumatic injury

A trauma surgeon, nurse, critical care paramedic on a medical motorcycle and a care ambulance that carries a nurse, paramedic and physician all tended to the man who was taken to Palo Alto County Hospital in Emmetsburg, where he later died.

The last time a rider died during RAGBRAI was in 2010 when a rider collided with another cyclist and suffered a head injury.
