Cameron Meyer brings home gold

Avon Valley Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

HE might be a world cham­pion on the track, but He­lena Val­ley cy­clist Cameron Meyer proved he could race with the best of them on the road too.

The dual 2017 UCI Track Cy­cling World Cham­pi­onships gold medal­list was a late in­clu­sion in the Com­mon­wealth Games’ in­di­vid­ual time trial com­pe­ti­tion on Tues­day for what would be his first race in the dis­ci­pline for more than two years.

While ex­pected to per­form well, few pre­dicted Meyer would come away with an up­set win, but that’s ex­actly what he did.

Meyer took out the gold medal af­ter fin­ish­ing in 48: 13.04, a huge 30 sec­onds ahead of Eng­land’s Harry Tan­field, who won sil­ver in a time of 48: 43.30.

Fel­low Aus­tralia Cal­lum Scot­son fin­ished in fourth.
