Known the world over for her dominance in BMX racing and 4cross, Caroline Buchanan has a winning history in Crankworx competition. Her two-wheeled story began at five-years-old – she then competed in her first BMX World Championships at eight. Her Crankworx career began in 2013. She describes the experience as “the best event vibe I have ever experienced.” Her Crankworx career highlight, so far, came the following year, when she stood on top of the box in the Ultimate Pump Track Challenge presented by RockShox alongside her now fiance, Barry Nobles. “We have both never won a competition at the same time so it was a fairytale night for us both to win.” After missing out on 2016 as she prepared for, and competed in, the Summer Olympics in Brazil, Buchanan is raring to go for Crankworx 2017. “I’ve never competed in a full Crankworx season before. I’m excited to be racing all four stops of the series and be a contender for the overall Queen of Crankworx title. That’s the goal.”
