“My most successful years have been the year after the Olympic Games where you learn from those mistakes, failures and hard times and build upon it. I wouldn’t be an 8 times World Champion now without what happened at those two Olympic Games. Every time it’s lit that fire and that’s very important in a long career I’ve been racing BMX since I was 5”

My special guest is Caroline Buchanan. Caroline is an 8 times World Champion which is 3 times BMX and 5 times Mountain Biking, while she also is a two time Olympian having represented Australia in London 2012 and Brazil in 2016.

You will learn plenty about Caroline Buchanan in episode 44 of Talking with TK.
