What do I do best

Thinking outside of the box and being unique both on and off the bike. I have never wanted to follow the same training program as someone else I have always wanted to put the work in and then see the results and adjust with my coaches and support network off that! Unique is power and when your focus is to better yourself in all aspects it makes the top of the podium step easier to continue to stand on top of.

What makes me the best version of myself?

Same as above ,,,,,

What are my aspirations?

One major stone I have left unturned within the sport of bmx is an Olympic medal... of any colour! My major sporting goal is to achieve this in Tokyo 2020!

Personally and in business I want to continue  being a role model, mentor to girls and give back through grants like #BuchananNextGen supporting 2 Aussie girls to compeate at the bmx world championships each year! I would love to expand my support for women after my career as well as be involved in marketing and sports media more! I have a real passion for sport but also on the creative marketing side as well as media and presenting!

My Biggest Success?

Flying the green and gold and competing  in 2 Olympic Games for Australia. As well as winning 8 World championships Titles!

My Most Challenging Moment?

My recent biggest success, surviving a life threatening off road vehicle roll over. Which left me with a broken sternum, broken nose and 2 collapsed lungs. Every day in my rehab and recovery is a personal best! My next podium when I return to sport will be my biggest achievement to date!

My Motto?

Be you stay true!
