Silver for Buchanan
AUSTRALIAN golden girl Caroline Buchanan has won silver on a wet and windswept track at the BMX World Championships in Zolder, Belgium. Buchanan stayed upright in a wild final of the elite women’s event, but Australia’s men were not as lucky. “This is by far the toughest conditions we’ve raced in for a world champs,” she said. “It was absolutely nuts.” Olympic silver medallist and defending world champion Sam Willoughby was taken out by Swiss rider David Graf at the head of the field in a men’s final where compatriot Anthony Dean also hit the bitumen.
