To mark the start of their new careers, both took the hardships as part of a long learning process. After ten stages, the two Garmin-Transition riders are more than an hour and a half down on Alexandre Vinokourov.

They shared their teammate Tyler Farrar’s triumph in Bitonto. “This gives you a very good feeling but I wasn’t feeling well during the whole stage,” said Meyer at the finishing line south of Italy.

Cameron Meyer of Team Garmin-Transitions will be using a new handlebar from 3T for the track world championships in Australia.

The handlebar was named the Sphinx for the flat forearm position of points of racers. 3T developed this item with Meyer.

Richard McAinsh, a technical director of 3T, explains how they worked with Meyer on the conception of the handlebar. “We know Cameron through Team Garmin-Transitions.
