Dual Olympian, Caroline Buchanan will try her hand at a new discipline of cycling when she competes in the final round of the 2018 UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup in Chengdu China from 2-4 November. "It has been quite a challenging year for me, most of my years have been an athlete focus" said the 28-year-old, who married her longtime partner Barry Nobles in the USA last month. 2018 has been a human focus; life and health have taken priority.
"I have never had six months off the bike before, so the challenge for me this year was all about being patient, sit through injuries, recover and get back into competition again." In true Buchanan style, when faced with one challenge, the best response is to take on another. The Canberran has
