Australian cyclist Travis Meyer has won the elite men’s Australian road race championship, only days after his 21-year-old brother, Cameron, won the Australian Time Trial Championship. “My first ever road national title and to do it in my first race in elite men, it is an unbelievable feeling. I can’t quite describe what it feels like. To win the road race after Cam’s just won the time trial, to have two national champions in the same team and in the same family, it is just unbelievable,” said Meyer. “I was more doing the team job for Cam Meyer, Matt Wilson and Jack Bobridge, so that’s why I went in the early attack. When the attack went it, it was quite fast up the climb the first time, so I imagine a lot of the guys in the group weren’t interested in going that early – I mean the first lap out of 166k, it is not usually a race winning move,” he added. Both brothers will now dawn the gold and green Australian jersey any time they defend their titles. The brothers will be riding for Garmin-Transitions in 2010.
