Caroline Buchanan (Australia) won the gold medal at the UCI Four Cross World Championships in Leogang, Austria on Saturday evening.
Buchanan dominated the small final while much of the action happened behind her. Katy Curd (Great Britain) and Anneke Beerten (Netherlands) battled it out for second. Beerten was ahead of Curd, but the later made up significant time on the jumps. Just as Beerten was getting overtaken, she crashed hard coming off a jump and destroyed her front wheel. The defending champion picked herself up and walked to the finish in fourth place.
Curd held on for second while Céline Gros (France) earned the bronze medal in her final Worlds.
