Caroline Buchanan classifies herself as more than a cyclist – though her passion for anything with two wheels is what drives the dream.
An athlete, business woman, social media influencer, mentor, proud advocate for women in sport and reality television tragic, World Champion and Olympian Caroline has been ear marked as one of the new guard of Australian Athlete.

Her down to earth attitude makes her one of the most approachable Australian sportswomen, despite having achieved six elite World Championships and twenty Australian National titles over three cycling disciplines.

Equally at home dodging trees downhill in the mud on a mountain bike, or flying over jumps on a BMX bike, Caroline has dominated both cycling disciplines, and she gets just as much enjoyment teaching two year olds how to navigate their very first turn on the track on a balance bike.
Whether she spends her day in the gym or in front of a TV camera, presenting to a corporate crowd or striking a pose for a fashion photographer, Caroline brings passion and persistence in her pursuit of perfection.

Off the track, she delights in the opportunity to embrace a double life for professional photoshoots and has been featured in interviews in industry and lifestyle print media publications such as Womens Health, Marie Claire, InStyle, Dolly and the Harley Davidson Magazine to name a but a few.

Caroline has co-produced a series of professional ‘Webisodes’, released via her YouTube Channel, in which she represents both herself, her sponsors and her sport. ‘Buchanan On Air’ and the ‘SIX-8’ series bring her fans along for the ride of life on the road, racing, and the highs and lows of life as a professional athlete. These have each been made into documentaries that have featured on the Fox Sports channels and airlines such as KLM, Air New Zealand and United.
Her social media following of over 200,000+ allows her to engage and be motivated by her fans on a daily basis, as well as actively and passively promoting her sponsors – blue chip and small business alike.
