It's been only three weeks since the brutal slaying of gravel racer Moriah 'Mo' Wilson, who was shot to death in Austin, Texas on May 11, and the gravel community is still grieving ahead of this weekend's marquee event, Unbound Gravel. Amy Charity, a racer and organiser of SBT GRVL, who will be competing in the half-distance Unbound 100, says Wilson's death has had a profound impact on the gravel community.

Charity was one of the racers who were in the Austin area for Gravel Locos, a 150-mile event in which Wilson was expected to compete, and said riders are still reeling.
