Aussie cycling’s rainbow stripes

Congratulations to Caroline Buchanan and Sam Willoughby – our latest cycling world champions.

Caroline took the rainbow stripes in the elite women’s time trial and Sam won the elite men’s at the BMX world titles in Birmingham UK on the weekend.

Great work from SBS Cycling Central to bring us prime time highlights amidst the Giro, and The Age for this piece on Buchanan.

By my reckoning, that makes 17 current UCI world titles.
