Aussie mountain bikers of the year awarded

Some of Australia's best mountain bikers were awarded at the 2008 Australian Cyclist of the Year awards in Melbourne last weekend.

Canberra's Caroline Buchanan won an impressive two categories. The 18-year-old was named both the Elite and Junior Female Mountain Bike Cyclist of the Year. She was also a finalist in the junior female BMX Cyclist of the Year, but that award went to Lauren Reynolds from Bunbury. Buchanan will compete in the Australian National Mountain Bike Series second round this weekend on the Gold Coast along with male BMX Cyclist of the Year winner Jared Graves (Toowoomba).
