For nearly two decades, eastern Croatia is the true European center for extreme sports, and all of that is due to Pannonian Challenge festival, which, along with the adrenaline stunts of the world’s top BMX, INLINE and SKATE riders, also offers an excellent complement of urban culture. Each year skate park in Osijek becomes home for over 300 top athletes, whose three-day spectacle sees over 20,000 enthusiastic visitors from all over the region.

Caroline Buchanan sat silently in the passenger seat next to her fiance, struggling to breathe and hitting the scariest point in her life as she turned to her childhood friend and said.. "Im not ready to die" On the outside she was calm. Silent and focused - just like she is before a BMX race. She stayed like that for 5 hours until she got transferred to the city hospital.
On the inside her body was a mess. A broken nose, broken sternum, two collapsed lungs and dangerous bleeding around her heart.
"I was running on adrenaline. About 30 minutes outside of Canberra the ambulance guy called the hospital and he had a shaky, nervous voice," Buchanan said. "If you're a paramedic you've seen a lot of things and they handle themselves so well. I thought if he's nervous ... that's when I knew it was life-threatening."
The two-time Olympian and eight-time world champion was at a friend's farm when an off-road buggy rolled and caused the injuries. The driver was OK but Buchanan was in debilitating pain and struggling to breathe. She knew something was seriously wrong and that's when she started to fight.
