Buchanan wins again in BMX

  • Buchanan wins again in BMX

    Australian BMX star Caroline Buchanan has opened the World Cup season with successive wins.

Australian BMX cycling star Caroline Buchanan is tracking perfectly for the Rio Olympics with successive World Cup wins.

Buchanan backed up from winning round one in Argentina late last month by taking out the second round in Manchester.

It is the third-straight year that she has won the Manchester leg of the Supercross World Cup series.

Her win coincided with the naming of the Australian team for the BMX world championships in Medellin, Colombia from May 25-29.

Buchanan, the 2013 world champion, is one of the main hopes in the elite team of nine men and six women.

The London Olympics finalist capitalised on a mistake by American star Alise Post in the final.

"I would have been happy with second, but anything can happen in BMX," Buchanan said.

"As I followed Alise out of the final corner I went to the left of her, then she stumbled and I came through for the win, it was a bit of a Bradbury moment."

Australia's elite team for the BMX Worlds:

Men: Sam Willoughby, Anthony Dean, Bodi Turner, Alex Cameron, Matthew Juster, Corey Frieswyk, Joshua Callan, Kai Sakakibara, Tristyn Kronk. Women: Caroline Buchanan, Lauren Reynolds, Melinda McLeod, Kirsten Dellar, Leanna Curtis, Rachelle Smith.
