Olympian Caroline Buchanan wins mountain bicycle 4 cross world championship

Two-time Olympian Caroline Buchanan was showered with beer when she crossed the finish line to declare her eighth world championship in a remarkable effort in Italy. Just weeks after adding a BMX time trial world title to her prize cabinet, Buchanan smashed the field at the mtb 4 cross occasion at Val di Sole in Trentino. The win topped off a chaotic year for the 26-year-old, who is set to go back to Canberra in the coming weeks for a month-long break from the global circuit. Buchanan finished second at the BMX world championships in the USA at the end of July, won the Crankworx pump work title in Canada recently and added the four-cross win in Italy. But Buchanan says she prospers on having a jam-packed schedule and has actually delighted in the pressure of changing disciplines to compete versus the best on the planet. She will recuperate in Canberra in September before getting ready for her last race in November in the US. “I believe this year has absolutely been my most significant year ever,” Buchanan informed Fairfax Media. “In the past four weeks I went to the BMX worlds, then to Canada for Crankworx and then on to Italy basically directly after. “To get 3 titles on three different bikes is quite remarkable. Every year I consider taking it a bit simpler, but there just appears to be increasingly more. “It’s crazy, however I think I carry out better when I’m under the pump with everything. It’s becoming a little a pattern for me … when I only focus on one event, like the Olympics, with absolutely nothing else on my mind I do not appear to carry out as well. “When I’m doing a lot and have a lot going on, I tend to stand out and step up.” Buchanan has now won 5 mountain bike world titles and is the back to back four cross champion. She struck the lead at the first corner and never ever looked like losing the final, beating Romana Labounkova and Helene Valerie Fruhwirth throughout the line. Fiance Barry Nobles, who was also competing, welcomed Buchanan on the finish line with a boozy shower in celebration of another massive accomplishment in her career. “The feeling never ever gets old. The world championships and the rainbow biking stripes … they’re identified across the board,” Buchanan said. “You become part of a bigger biking household. I got up this morning to a message from [Australian biking champ] Robbie McEwin and you become part of that family. That’s why it’s unique.” Buchanan completed second in the BMX world titles last month by an agonising 0.008 seconds, but won the time trial world championship. Meanwhile, Canberra trio Dan McConnell, Rebecca Henderson, Eliza Kwan and Ronja Hill-Wright will race for Australia as part of the males’s and females’s elite teams at the mtb world champions in Cairns from September 5-10. McConnell, Henderson and Kwan will race in the cross country events while Hill-Wright belongs to the elite ladies’s downhill squad.
