Australian WorldTour team Orica-Scott has announced the return of Cameron Meyer, who quit as a professional road cyclist in 2016.

Meyer announced his retirement due to personal reasons while riding for Dimension Data in 2016. He did later return to action in track cycling and won the points race and the team pursuit at the 2017 World Championships. The rider also represented the Australian national team on the road.

The 29-year-old, who rode for Orica-Scott (then GreenEdge) from 2012 to 2015, is now ready to return to the WorldTour.

"I am really happy to be coming back to the team," he said. "I have a lot of friends here including riders and staff members and I’m excited to be returning to a familiar environment where I previously spent four successful years.

"During my time away from the team racing for the Australian national squad I found that striking a good balance between track and road commitments is what suits me best. A big goal on the horizon for me is to win a gold medal in the madison at the next Olympics in Tokyo and the Commonwealth Games before that.

"I couldn’t be happier to be going back to a team where I already have good relationships and that helps and allows me to achieve those goals on the track whilst maintaining a balance with my objectives on the road.

"Along with those ambitions on the track I am looking forward to pursuing success on the road and giving my experience to the team. I am excited about targeting new races such as the Hammer Series as it adds another element to professional cycling.

"When speaking to Matt White and Shayne Bannan I found that they were happy to help me find the perfect balance in terms of supporting me in chasing my dreams both on the track and on the road and I feel very fortunate to be coming back into this set up," he concluded.
