Vuelta a España
Stage 15: Oviedo - Lagos de Covadonga - Stage Details

2014 Tour de Suisse stage winner Cameron Meyer has put on a gutsy performance in the breakaway on stage 15 of the Vuelta a Espana today.

Meyer, who has spent the last two weeks on domestique duties for the ORICA-GreenEDGE team, made a move of five riders after an hour of racing and was caught by the fast finishing overall contenders in the final three kilometers.

The 26-year-old’s breakaway companion Przemyslaw Niemiec (LAM) held on for the victory.

“We had a really really hard start,” sport director Neil Stephens said.

“A few of our guys were trying to go with the move. Adam (Yates) and Simon Clarke tried a few times and Cameron ended us picking the right move which was great.
