Cameron Meyer (born 11 January 1988) is an Australian professional racing cyclist, who currently races for UCI WorldTeam Mitchelton–Scott.[2]

Career[edit]

Born in Viveash, Western Australia, Meyer started cycling at the age of 13 in 2001 and first represented his country at the World Junior Track Championships in 2005. He was an Australian Institute of Sport scholarship holder.[3]

Meyer won his first senior World Championship in the Points Race in Pruszków, Poland. In 2009 he was selected to ride the Giro d'Italia. He won the time-trial event at the 2010 Australian National Road Race Championships.

Meyer's younger brother Travis Meyer is also a professional racing cyclist, and was one of Orica-GreenEDGE's first signings alongside Cameron and fellow Australian Jack Bobridge.[4] After four seasons with Orica–GreenEDGE, in October 2015 Meyer announced that he would be joining Team Dimension Data for the 2016 season, alongside fellow Australians Nathan Haas and Mark Renshaw.[5]

Meyer announced his departure from Team Dimension Data on 14 June 2016; for personal reasons of an undisclosed nature.[6] After a short break, he decided to enter the Six Day London track race with Callum Scotson and placed third overall.[7] He subsequently competed for Austrialia at the 2017 UCI Track Cycling World Championships, where he took two golds in the points race and as part of the Australian team pursuit squad, and rode for the Australian national team on the road during 2017, winning the Dwars door de Vlaamse Ardennen and scoring top five finishes in the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race and the Herald Sun Tour. In August 2017, Mitchelton–Scott announced that Meyer would rejoin them on a three-year contract from 2018, with a focus on winning the madison at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and the 2020 Summer Olympics.[2]
