Moriah Wilson, known as “Mo” Wilson, was killed Wednesday night in a reported shooting in Austin, Texas, where she was staying in preparation for Gravel Locos on Saturday morning.

On Saturday afternoon, Austin ABC affiliate KUVE investigative reporter Tony Plohetski posted on Twitter: “Austin police confirm they are investigating the murder of a rising cycling star after she was shot multiple times in an East Austin home Moriah Wilson, 25, was found on Wednesday Police say they have a person of interest and the shooting was not random .

Initial reports were made by CBS Austin, saying police viewed the shooting as “suspicious” and ruled out suicide. A separate Velonews report named Wilson as the victim of the shooting.

“The complainant, who is a friend [sic]I assume, lives with her, found her and contacted the police as soon as possible,” an APD spokesperson told CBS Austin reporters earlier this week.

Wilson had recently won the 222 km Belgian Waffle Ride California. With her victory in the Fuego MTB 80k at the Sea Otter Classic in April, she had taken the top lead for the elite women in the Life Time Grand Prix off-road series. She was scheduled to start Saturday at Gravel Locos in Hico, Texas, then race Unbound Gravel on June 4, round two of the six-six Life Time Grand Prix series.

A week shy of his 26th birthday, Wilson was on the Dartmouth College alpine ski team for four years, spent two years in cycling and captained the football team before graduating in 2019. She worked for Specialized and had a full gravel racing schedule, including Gravel Locos this weekend.

Cyclingnews has contacted the Austin Police Department for further information and will provide further details when provided.

Eric and Karen Wilson, Moriah’s parents, were both members of the US Ski Team. The parents and their son Matt, Moriah’s brother, released a statement on Friday, which is posted below.

The Cyclingnews team sends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of Moriah Wilson.

Statement from Eric and Karen Wilson

We thank everyone for their expressions of love and support for us during this difficult time. While Moriah’s tragic loss is unfathomable, at the same time, we want everyone to join us in celebrating his life, his accomplishments, and his love for others. Always pushing relentlessly to achieve her goals, we knew she was pursuing what she loved. We will miss her terribly and know that we all mourn her with us.

Moriah is known to want the event to go ahead for her compatriots to test their limits, as she would have been alongside her friends at the racetrack. We hope everyone feels their passion and support as they pursue their own dreams. His spirit will be there with all of you, during training and every race day.

Please do not request interviews or comments during the remainder of May. We are planning a celebration of life in June and will let you know the details soon. – Eric, Karen Matt Wilson
