Two-time Olympian Caroline Buchanan will return to the AIS in the coming days to work out a plan to recover from another injury setback just months after jumping back on to her bike.

Buchanan dislocated and broke her finger at the UCI freestyle world championships in China, where she made the finals in her first attempt at a new discipline.

"Unfortunately I collided with another rider in practice and broke my finger, so I'll get [it in a cast] and head back to Australia," Buchanan said.

Buchanan has taken on a new freestyle challenge this year, which could pave the way for her two enter two different events at the Tokyo Olympic Games if she's successful.

Freestyle BMX is passed on accumulating points for tricks, which is a major shift from her usual racing in a 30-second sprint around a track.
