Two-time Australian Olympian and BMX star Caroline Buchanan has released a new children’s book.

Well known in cycling circles around the world and a much loved member of the Australian BMX family, Caroline Buchanan has found another way to inspire the younger generation.

An 8-time world champion across mountain bike and BMX racing, who competed at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games, Buchanan loves being a role model and leading by example for kids.

Over the years she has been a major influence on the careers of many riders and contributed financially to several talented young female BMX racers with her ‘Buchanan Next Gen’ initiative.

Now the Canberran is looking to further inspire youngsters through her brand new book series ‘Girls Can B’, launching with the first title ‘Dress Up Day’.

“I am so proud to launch my first ever kids book,” Buchanan said.

“It’s an encouraging story that breaks down the stereotypes of what girls can be from a young age.”

Based on her own experiences as a child becoming the champion she is today in a predominantly male sport, the book shares important messages around love, passion, individuality and bravery.

‘Girls Can B – Dress Up Day’ by Caroline Buchanan with Dani Carey, illustrated by Ana Naranjo, is out now.
