Moriah Wilson won the inaugural Big Sugar Gravel 103-mile race routed through the Ozark Mountains outside of Bentonville, Arkansas. 

Wilson finished the race in five and a half hours to win the race by 1:13 over Emily Newsom and 18 minutes to third placed Maddy Ward.

“I don’t know if I had a strategy going in, just trying to hold on during the fast sections at the beginning,” said Wilson in a post-race press release. 

“I was definitely a little off the back coming into the first section of gravel and then worked my way up in the women’s lead group and then started to pick up the pace a bit and finished strong. The first half was really fast, pretty loose, but it was really fun and a good mixture of different terrain.”

The marquee Big Sugar event offered a 103-mile course of challenging roads through the Ozarks with approximately 8,000 feet of elevation gain.
