Sil­ver for Buchanan

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

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.
