Caroline Buchanan on Igniting the next generations

Episode 1,   Jul 09, 2021, 07:42 PM

We sit down with Caroline Buchanan whilst at Audi Nines 2021 to discuss the progression of female mountain bike athletes, as well as her career and achievements, the importance of representation and support and her scholarship program for the next generations of women riders.

3 x BMX World Champion, 5 x Mountain Bike World Champion and Dual Olympian Athlete, Caroline has been riding the bike for well over two decades. As one of Australia’s most popular female action sports athletes, Caroline rules the BMX race course, excels in Downhill Mountain Biking, dominates the Dual Slalom and loves the Pump Track.  

But Caroline classifies herself as more than just a cyclist. 

Pro-athlete, business woman, social media talent, mentor and proud advocate for women in sports are only some of the hats she wears. 
With her down to earth attitude, she has catapulted herself to be one of Australia’s most approachable sportswomen, being equally at home dodging trees downhill on a mountain bike as she is teaching young girls how to navigate their first run on the track. 

Caroline’s personal values of equality, hard work and respect motivate her to live by one of her mottos - "overcoming what life throws at you makes you stronger”. With her influence and recognition in her field, she uses her platform to support and empower young women in sports, paving the way for the Next Gen.
