Director’s report from Matt White

Cameron Meyer - Team Garmin-Transitions Cam Meyer started where the team left off in October. Winning.

After a roller-coaster year last year — starting with the highs of becoming world champion at 21 years of age on the track and competing in the Giro as a neo-pro, followed with the lows of missing the second part of the season with two shoulder operations — Cam’s returns back to competition has been very successful.

Cam won two gold medals at the track world cup In November and the national Madison tittle only weeks ago, Cam showed his versatility by going on better than last year in claiming his first professional road TT title.

He was challenged for the majority of the race, only having a five second lead at the half-way mark. He was being pushed by Milram’s Olympic track champ Luke Roberts .

In the final 10km Cam pushed on to victory on a challenging run to the finish in blustery conditions, with Roberts fading to third. Cam’s younger brother Travis had a very credible ride coming in fifth in his first outing for Garmin-Transitions.

The next goal for us is to take the double on Sunday. Coming to join the Meyer brothers will be world U23 TT champ Jack Bobridge and former Australian champion on this course, Matt Wilson.

Keep posted for the Garmin-Transitions Aussie assault this Sunday!
