Mars Cycling Australia Road Championships
Criterium - Men - Stage Details

Cameron Meyer put his well-honed time trial skills on display in the elite men’s criterium at the Mars Cycling Australia Road National Championships. The Western Australian established an early solo lead after countering a move made by his brother Travis Meyer and managed to hold off the field for 26 laps en route to his third elite national title – his first in the criterium. Back in the bunch, Leigh Howard managed second in the sprint behind Steele Van Hoff (Victoria) to round out the podium. 

“It’s another special win. Obviously to win any Australian championship is special. I’m a little surprised as the criterium is not my forte. I’m definitely thought of more as a time trialist or road racer, but I went out there today and showed I have good form. We had some good tactics from the start, but we didn’t have to use them today.” - Cameron Meyer
