Tour de Suisse
Stage 3: Montreux - Meiringen - Stage Details

Lining up for stage three of Tour de Suisse with the yellow jersey still on his back was another special day for Cameron Meyer. The ORICA-GreenEDGE squad gave a tremendous effort yesterday to keep Meyer in the lead. Today’s 203 kilometre stage to Meiringen was another big ask to keep the coveted yellow jersey. The team rode in support of Meyer all day. In the end Meyer fell off the lead group going over the final climb of the day. Finishing in the top 20, Meyer is now in 11th overall, 1’42 behind new race leader Mathias Frank (BMC).

“Of course having the yellow jersey within the team has been a bonus, but we knew keeping the yellow jersey through the tour was a mighty task. The team will continue to look out for Cam’s GC ambitions. The overall will be decided in the final days of the tour – the penultimate day and the time trial. We expect these will be good days for Cam to move back up in the GC. Until then the next few days will be open for the opportunists. Here we might expect to see some of our fast guys go for their own goals.” - Sport Director Laurenzo Lapage.
