Buchanan Next Gen BMX World Championships 2015

What a huge adventure & learning experience for Buchanan Next Gen at the BMX World Championships in Belgium this week!

After overcoming a broken collar bone at Australian Nationals in April and a dislocated knee shortly thereafter, Mikayla Rose #22 from Canberra ACT battled it out to the semi-finals, missing a finals berth by just one place

Tayla “Minnie” Robertson from Shepparton VIC placed a solid 5th in the final at her first ever BMX World Championships.

Paige Harding #66 Castle Hill NSW was unlucky with a nasty crash and broken wrist in the quarter finals after riding so well all day.

I am so very proud of the girls and their families for the way they have trained and the attitudes they have bought to the sport. The team camaraderie is fabulous and I am so pleased that, crashes aside, all the girls rode brilliantly, supported one another and gave their all in racing.

A huge thank you to Jayco Caravans & The Layne Beachley Aim For The Stars Foundation for making my dreams a reality to support and mentor an all girls BMX team and have them compete for Australia Internationally at the World Championships.
