“Caroline Rocks! Hard working and fiercely determined to succeed, keen to learn, motivated to help others, Caroline is a remarkable role model and a wonderful human being. She is a champion both on and off the bike.”

“Caroline has been a part of the BMX HP program for the past 10 years. I have had the privilege of working beside Caroline since her early years as a developing athlete through to more recent times where she has enjoyed international success as a world class athlete across multiple cycling disciplines.
Through true passion for the sport, determination to be the best and attention to detail, Caroline has placed herself in an elite category that strives for perfection. By always exhibiting respect towards her competitors, team mates and support staff; Caroline embodies qualities of true sportsmanship and professionalism.
Caroline’s work ethic as an athlete transfers to her life off the bike and this attributewill serve her well in any endeavour she pursues post her athletic career.
Caroline loves to be hands on and a part of all design and decision making processes. This collaborative effort helps her maintain focus and clarity around her objectives and ensures that we are in it together.
With an ability to relax and switch focus when needed, Caroline maintains great balance in life which really allows her to turn up the intensity during competition time.
Coaching Caroline has been a privilege and a great experience for me. I am sure we will look back on her cycling journey fondly and without regret and I look forward to creating more great memories in the years ahead.”

"Caroline's unique ability to help others fall in love with her sport is what being an Oakley Athlete is all about. Her tenacity and creativity fits perfect with Oakley DNA. We are honored to have Caroline in the Oakley family”

“Having been involved in sport my entire life, firstly as an athlete, and now as a journalist, I've seen thousands of talented athletes come and go. While I have respect for them all, it's with particular pleasure that I have witnessed Caroline's riseto the elite level. As an athlete, it goes without saying that she is at the top of her game, but I'm equally impressed by her professionalism off the bike. There would be few better examples of a young lady in sport that optimizes what it is to be the quintessential role model. Caroline is truly a great ambassador, not just for her sport of BMX, but for sport in general. And while the Olympic Games will only award one Gold Medal in her discipline, regardless of which neck it will proudly hang from, I believe Caroline has already became a champion we can all be inspired by.”
