Join Caroline Buchanan supporting BMX and women in sport by launching her Next Gen team. Lets enable BMX girls to race around AUS and qualify for the BMX World Championships!

Today is the launch of my Caroline's girls BMX team; BUCHANAN Next Gen and their campaign on The campaign is running for the month of Feb finishing on March 1st.


Be sure to not only check out the merchandise area but the sponsorship packages, details and updates.

Show your support and share the campaign around. There's also a $950 frame you can buy that was used during the 2012 London Olympic Games!

Paige Harding and Mikayla Rose are the first members of the BUCHANAN Next Gen Team!

We're going to help build the future of BMX in Australia. The first step is to help two incredibly talented young girls attend key races around Australia and qualify for the BMX World Championships in Holland Paige Harding 10 years old Sydney & Mikayla Rose 13 years old Canberra are Australian and World ranked already showing huge potential to be Australia's Olympians of tomorrow. Join me in giving them the best chance possible to qualify for the World Championships.

The Buchanan Next Gen Mission

As a 5 time BMX and Mountain Bike World Champion I want to give back to the sport that has taken me through an amazing journey to the highest level competing at the Olympic Games. I want to support and nurture the future of BMX and women in sport. To break the mould of sponsorship support in Australia taking it to a new level of professionalism. Help the girls to overcome adversity that is faced in male dominated sport and when aspiring to be the best in the world. Give them the opportunities to compete on the world stage and gain the experience nessecary to be champions of the future.

Where will the funds go?

Both the girls are minors and need to have an accompanying guardian/parent when traveling to races. Getting to Rotterdam it will roughly cost $6000 per girl including airfares, accommodation, travel, food and race entry fees. Getting to Shepparton for BMX National Championships will roughly cost $2000 per girl – accommodation, travel, food, race entry fees etc. Of course there will also be campaign costs to buy merchandise for the supporter packages as well as postage etc. Go here to donate

Introducing Paige Harding

Paige is an amazing young rider. At the age of 10 she's already been NSW and ACT state champion and shown some great skills. I'd love to give her the best shot possible to further develop, compete and pursue her dream of competing in the 2024 Olympics.

Paige's goals
Become ACT and NSW state champion again 2014.
Make the Australian Mighty 11’s test match team to compete against New Zealand 2014.
Podium at BMX National Championship 2014.
Become NSW State Series champion again 2014.
I know she would dearly love to contest her world plate in Rotterdam but unfortunately we are not in the financial position to do that in 2014 at this stage. Unless we have a successful Sportaroo campaign.
Her long term goals are to become an elite BMX rider, ride the USA Grand Nationals and to make the 2024 Australian Olympic BMX Team.

Coming Events
Paige has a packed schedule for 2014. Her parents have been incredibly supportive to get her this far. Lets take some of the pressure off by helping fund travel to some of these events:
Track Attack – Victoria.
Trial for Qualification for the Australian leg of Mighty 11’s Test Team.
ACT State Titles.
BMX National Championships.
Trial for Qualification for the New Zealand leg of Mighty 11’s Test Team.

Depending if Paige qualifies for the New Zealand leg of the Mighty 11’s, she may also do the Victorian State Tiles.

All NSW Open Races except for the 3 Track Classic and NSW vs. VIC – at this stage.

Introducing Mikayla Rose

Mikayla is also an amazing talent. I've been keeping an eye on her performance for a while and think she really has potential. How amazing would it be if she made it to the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. Lets see what we can do to give her the best shot!
